This tour will take attendees to the new corporate headquarters facility for Weir/SPM, a Scottish owned company specializing in drilling and pumping equipment for the oil and gas industry.
The new headquarters building is a 62,750sf, three-story building located in the center of the company’s existing campus in White Settlement, Texas. Several of the company’s office facilities were relocated from the neighboring buildings to the new building to improve the adjacencies between the different office groups on the campus. The design features large areas of exterior glass and vertical atrium light sources allowing daylighting throughout the facility. Large areas of exposed concrete structure are utilized on the interior finishes to create an international feel to the building’s interior. Public spaces anchor the ground floor, general staff offices are located on the second floor, and the executive suites are on the third floor to provide scenic views of Fort Worth and beyond. LEED design was one of the major concerns for Weir, and the facility uses several green friendly design elements to achieve LEED Silver.
Sound attenuation was a major design element of the facility. The campus is located at the south end of the primary runway for the Naval Air Station in Fort Worth. Sound levels of 110dB are common on the site when jet fighters take off, and a major design requirement was to reduce sound levels to below 60dB inside the offices. A great deal of investigation, design and testing was utilized to successfully develop a window wall system capable of providing the sound attenuation desired.
