Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, LLP
When transactions are your business, every transaction counts. When Bank of America needed to expand support of its trading operations, it turned to WB Moore.
One of several buildings in Bank of America’s corporate campus in uptown Charlotte, the new Trading floor and Data Center were completed in 2002. At the time, Hearst Tower was the second tallest in Charlotte. The Hearst Publishing Corporation and Bank of America were the initial primary tenants in the building, with space also designated for retail third party tenants.
The trading floors, occupying two floors, and a separate 40,000 square foot data center combine to form the project. They posed a unique challenge for the construction team at WB Moore. A 50-foot ceiling and the frequency of fixture replacement posed a secondary challenge. On trading floors, lighting is critical to productivity.
The proof? A fully-functioning data center with redundant capacity and both emergency and critical distribution for uninterrupted, 24/7 operations.
