DLR Group Office Building

Hawkins constructed this office building for DLR Group, an innovative commercial design firm in Omaha Nebraska. The project was completed by two contracts:  one for the building core and shell package, and a second for the tenant fit-out. 

DLR Group occupies the upper levels of this three-story structure and tenants occupy the 1st level. DLR’s design incorporated an industrial high-tech concept, which is visible throughout the building interior with details such as exposed steel lintels, reclaimed wood, and recycled materials

The building’s deep foundations were constructed with geo-piers. Structural steel was used for the remainder of the building, along with metal decking and poured concrete topping. This unique building included several types of construction:  the north facade is of curtain wall construction, the south facade is a load-bearing masonry wall system with brick veneer with sun shading devices; the east side consists of a CMU bearing masonry with brick veneer; and the west facade includes open air balconies on the 2nd and 3rd levels.

“Hawkins Construction Company has brought ideas to the District for both cost savings as well as scheduling to keep projects both on time and on budget. To help do this they make time early in the project for both collaborative value engineering as well as learning the intricacies of our projects to avoid potential schedule problems. This understanding of the project helps them with the management of subcontractors and makes for a more organized construction process.”
