SOUTHFIELD, MI-The design of its $20-million corporate headquarters here hasearned the design and construction team of Barton Malow Co. a Design-Build Institute of America National Design-Build Award. The company has won the award three times since 1996.

Barton Malow received the award last week in Denver at the DBIA nationalconference.

The headquarters is a project that could have been accomplished only under a design-build arrangement, company officials say. With architects and builders in house, and with design-build a corporate specialty, the team created a home for their most demanding client–themselves.

The four-story glass curtainwall slopes inward, over serene wetlands, providing a refreshing view; this softness contrasts with the angles and details of open infrastructure throughout work areas. Job function, not rank, is the primary determinant of office assignments, and employees in remote locations take part in local presentations throughteleconferencing.

The building offers a four-story atrium, a fitness center and a coffee house.

Construction on the 8-acre site began on the 110,000-sf building in September 2000 and was completed in November 2001.

Barton Malow/Barton Malow Design team has won National Design-Build Awards in 1997 for the American Concrete Institute’s headquarters in Farmington Hills, MI, and in 1996 for their work on the West Suburban Center for Primary Care in River Forest, IL.
