Liberty Mutual Insurance CEO Long Breaks Ground on New Plano Campus
PLANO, TX Liberty Mutual Insurance kicked off construction of its new cornerstone campus in Plano, Texas at a groundbreaking ceremony hosted by Liberty Mutual Chairman and CEO David H. Long and Chief Talent and Enterprise Services Officer Melanie Foley.
Liberty Mutual's more than $325 million expansion project will bring over 4,000 employees to Plano and an additional 1,000 construction jobs. Located in the vibrant Legacy West development, Liberty Mutual's Plano campus offers employees convenient access to shops, restaurants and apartments. This proximity, combined with in-office amenities such as an on-site medical center, full-service cafeteria, covered parking, full locker rooms, and two rooftop gardens for relaxation to help support employees' lifestyles and demands and provide an environment where they can be their best, both personally and professionally.
The new 19-story building's open-floor plan will disburse natural light throughout every level while being 20 percent more energy efficient than the typical modern office. The completed Plano campus will meet LEED Silver requirements and be Liberty Mutual's eighth LEED-certified building. Each aspect of the design, construction and operation will use sustainable or green resources and materials as well as incorporating energy-efficiency and water-conservation methods.
The ceremony was attended by Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere, Economic Development Officer Sally Bane, Insurance Commissioner David Mattax and members of the city council.
To meet the 2017 completion date, KDC Developers has assembled an expert team including OMNIPLAN as architects, Kimley-Horn as civil engineers, Studio Outside as landscape architects, LA Fuess as structural engineers, Telios as mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineers, and Balfour Beatty Construction as general contractors.
