Nov

Client

  • Blue Origin – Aerospace Research and Development

Challenge

  • Their creative and talented workforce grew from 750 to nearly 3000 and counting in less than three years. Blue Origin needed to build a high-tech, sustainable facility to inspire and support 1500 team members. It will serve as Blue Origin’s new headquarters and R&D space.

Solution

  • 225,000 square-foot Sprung structure was built and move-in ready for a world-leading private space exploration company – in only 11 months.

Results

  • Blue Origin’s building was completed on time and on budget. The space was designed to help employees feel and perform their best. Features include a garden, fitness facilities, an auditorium and diverse areas to relax, collaborate and socialize with team members from across the company.


 

This Sprung Structure Features:

  • The structure’s unique U-shape makes the most of the site’s geography. Its striking silhouette complements the local area.
  • Sprung structures provide a large, clear-span space. Open workspaces and areas for large gatherings, such as this auditorium, exist alongside smaller areas better suited to private meetings and focused work.
  • Blue Origin’s brand is front and center with a combination of custom color-matched Kynar® and Dupont™ Tedlar® architectural membranes. The design is inspired by human genome DNA sequence patterns.
  • Strategically integrated daylight panels and glazing walls provide an abundance of natural light that enhances the interior working environment.
