About the Project

The 2 and 3 Allen Center Repurpose Project consisted the renovation of approximately 95,000 SF of the first two floors, elevator lobbies and elevator interiors, constructing a new sky bridge connecting 2 and 3 Allen Centers, as well as replacing all exterior windows on the first two floors. The entire outdoor plaza was waterproofed as it is positioned directly over a parking garage. Additionally, the adjacent hardscape and landscape were redesigned.

Some project highlights include the new skybridge, which was constructed over an underground parking structure that required the installation of a steel platform in order to bring materials into the area, the installation of 160 aluminum fins which were 35 feet long and anodized to create a feature wall in 3 Allen Center, as well as the two feature stone walls in 3 Allen Center which are clad with stone from Tunisia, Africa.

Safety Perspective

Safety is always important on Tellepsen projects, but this one in particular was critical. The renovation was focused on the lower levels of Two and Three Allen Center while the upper levels continued to be occupied and utilized by existing tenants and visitors. Planning and a well-detailed site specific safety plan were integral to the safe delivery of this project.
