This fourth Partners Place building within the South Research Campus affords 64,000 square feet of technical office space in addition to an 11,000 square foot Data Center housing mission critical, enterprise wide infrastructure for the University of Oklahoma. Designed to foster a collaborative environment, the large common spaces facilitates multi-disciplinary interaction. The conveying stairwells, surrounded with tinted low-E glazing, saturates the users as they travel between levels. A large community break area provides intuitive seating arrangements and lighting to stimulate the free exchange of ideas.
Many of the design decisions were made with the overriding goal to conserve resources. LEED Certification was awarded to both the office and data center components which further underscores the commitment of the University and the teamwork by all groups associated with the project.
