University Headquarters

Daytona Beach, Florida

This world headquarters building is on the Daytona Beach, Florida campus of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU). This iconic five-sided building will exemplify the “aeronautical mission” of the university as it welcomes students, staff and visitors. Clean glass curtain wall detailing creates a distinct aerodynamic shape. Situated at a busy intersection, the five-story design features a multi-storied atrium created to display two vintage airplanes suspended from the ceiling. 

The first floor of the 110,000-SF building includes a lecture hall and conference center complete with a large kitchen facility.  The remaining floors house offices and administrative areas for many of the university’s worldwide operations. The building is designed to receive LEED certification.
