BROOKSVILLE, FLORIDA - The St. Petersburg Times, Hernando Publishing Headquarters presented a unique opportunity to combine executive offices/operations and distribution into one special-use facility encompassing 4.34 acres with a 29,000 SF., multi-level building with a 2 story entry/reception feature, including imported ceramic floors in the public areas and a staircase traversing up to a second story landing which provided access to Operations and Administrative offices
The architectural elements offered some challenging construction details including a rolled steel roof and an exposed clerestory. Exposed structural steel components, open ceilings and modular office systems were designed to create an atmosphere of light and height to the interior of the space.
Completed in 356 days, the combination of site restraints, scheduling commitments and specialty materials created a unique team building opportunity between the owner, architect and contractor.
