The El Paso Corporation Headquarters Building is a 45-year-old, 32-story high-rise that underwent a complete makeover of all employee areas. The project included a new 20,000-square-foot data center, new floors and ceilings, and new MEP systems. The tenant-occupied building remained fully operational throughout construction and is targeting LEED Silver. The El Paso tower renovation was designed by Gensler, winner of the Architectural/Engineering Award of the Year from ASA Houston. BD+C
