For 100 years, the mission of State Farm Insurance has and continues to be to help people manage the risks of everyday life, recover from the unexpected, and realize their dreams. State Farm’s new Regional Hub is located in the mixed-use campus known as Park Center, developed by KDC and designed by Cooper Carry.
The 4-acre corporate development is intended to be a live, work, play community. It is the largest corporate office project ever developed in Metro Atlanta. At full build-out, the transit connected community will include 2.2 million square feet of office space and almost 100,000 square feet of retail, restaurants, and entertainment. State Farm is the primary tenant at the new Park Center, located in Dunwoody, GA, a north Atlanta suburb.
Phase I included Building I, a 21 story, 585,000 square foot building with a fitness center, retail on the ground floor, plus a parking structure. ASD won the design project for the Park Center campus before NTI became part of ASD in mid-2018. The ASD team designed the structured cabling system and the security systems for Phase I of the project and completed their work in 2017.
Phase II of the project included Building II and Building III.
Building II opened earlier this year. The 22 story building has approximately 670,000 square feet and, like Building I, is occupied by State Farm employees. NTI began working with ASD to design the Building II technology systems (Division 27 & 28 systems). Our design included the entire building’s structured cabling system and security systems, plus campus-wide Wi-Fi coverage and a campus-wide security system including the security operations center. As part of our delivered drawing set, we also documented State Farm’s defined audio visual requirements.
