STG Design has celebrated many successes in 2018, and as we look ahead to 2019, we’re celebrating the journey we’ve taken this past year. As we continue to pursue design excellence, we reflect on last year's accomplishments and challenges that have contributed to the progress in and around our communities. We are grateful to everyone who has played a role in the growth of our firm and look forward to an exciting new year.
Oracle Waterfront Campus
The opening of Oracle’s new urban waterfront campus has been an outstanding accomplishment this year. The complex was designed with the employee in mind while honoring Austin’s unique culture, lifestyle, and natural surroundings. The 560,000 square foot campus provides Oracle’s estimated 10,000 employees with innovative workspaces, training center, tech bar, dining facility, fitness center, outdoor terraces, and a Starbucks lounge.
Our Nashville team rose to the challenges of developing a modern high-security building in a remote location to design The Department of Energy's Pantex facility, which provides an administrative and support structure charged with the safety and effectiveness of the nation’s nuclear weapons mission. The LEED Certified, 343,000 square-foot building houses 1,100 administrative staff and is equipped with an auditorium, conference center, meeting spaces, full-service cafeteria, and medical and employee health and fitness facilities.
University of Arizona Honors Village
In partnership with American Campus Communities, STG Design has developed The University of Arizona's first full-service, living-learning community. To recruit the best and brightest students, this “campus within a campus” will include a residence hall and dining, recreation, wellness, parking, and academic facilities where over 4,000 Honors students will study, eat, live, and play. Students are set to occupy starting in Fall 2019.
While our employees differ in many ways, all STG staff are committed to developing and continually improving professionally. We were happy to announce ownership news and many new promotions, registrations, and team members this year.
Ownership of the company has been transferred from the firm’s principal shareholders to STG Design’s employees. With the primary goals of continuity in leadership, autonomy, culture, and design services, the company elected to establish an ESOP to recognize and reward the commitment, passion, and talent of its employees, both present and future.
This year we welcomed Jerome Alemayehu, Brooke Allen, Daniel Bachelier, Emily Brown, Holly Bryant, Sera Cremona, Callan Flynn, Judson Garwood, Jessica Maloney, Stephanie Press, Emily Reznecheck, Haleigh Robinson, Claudia Rodriguez, Raquel Royal, Jeff Senatore, Megan Tooker, and Arpad Takacs to the STG Design team.
People are the most important resource at STG, and all the personalities, talents, and passions in each office make doing serious work fun. This year we've celebrated traditions, birthdays, the births of babies, and project wins. We built sandcastles and an award-winning doghouse. We have lit up the night in remembrance and sang out the end of 2018.
Two projects to become LEED certified projects in 2018 are Mopac (8611 Centre) and Pantex.
Congratulations are in order for Ekta Khuller, who joined an exclusive group by earning the WELL Accredited Professional (WELL AP) credential through the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) to her USGBC LEED APTM and Professional BD+C accreditations. STG will now be able to work towards achieving WELL certification for qualified projects and help guide clients to best WELL practices to further our commitment to health and wellness in the built environment.
Take a virtual trip through the future Del Webb Bexley clubhouse! The central amenity center will provide residents a place to gather and watch sports games, socialize over a cup of coffee, work out, and cool off in the resort-style pool.
