swaim speedtano office building
Swaim Associates' new home is part of a 27,000 s.f. professional office complex along the Pantano Wash. Through a design/build partnership with Lloyd Construction, affordability was maintained at $105/s.f. for the shell buildings and $36/s.f. for Swaim’s tenant improvement – costs that are unheard of today for a masonry and steel Class “A” office building. Though not yet completed, the complex is already becoming somewhat of a landmark on East Speedway with its bold green second story and steel eyebrows. The eyebrows allow the building to take advantage of the expansive northern views while blocking out the harsh
western sun. Skylights and carefully placed windows provide significant
daylighting. A section of the City's linear park system was developed as a part of the project.
