Phillips 66 has unveiled plans for the company’s new 1.1 million-square-foot, multi-building campus along the Energy Corridor. Company officials say they are ready to break ground by the end of this year.
The project for the permanent headquarters is located on 14.2 acres off Beltway 8 West between Westheimer Road and Briar Forest Drive, sitting between the CityWestPlace campus and the Fairfield Inn by Marriott.
“We are in the conceptual design phase with our architectural firm,” says Janet Grothe, a senior advisor with Phillips 66, “so it’s not yet finalized. I can tell you it will be a multi-building campus and it will include a cafeteria, fitness center, coffee shop, convenience store, credit union, conference center and a covered parking garage.”
Because the building plans remain in flux, final cost for construction is unknown at this time.
Once the conceptual design phase is completed and permits obtained, following groundbreaking, construction will take about 36 months to complete.
Grothe says Phillips 66 is seeking a LEED certification level of silver for its new headquarters, with the ultimate goal to enhance the design toward gold certification.
The state-of-the-art Phillips 66 complex will be the home for the company’s 1,800 Houston workers as well as work base for its global employees. Phillips 66, ConocoPhillips’ refining arm, ranked No. 16 on Fortune’s Global 500 list released this month with an annual revenue of $169.6 billion. The company was the big winner on Forbes 500 U.S. list, taking the No. 4 position in 2013 barely a year after it began trading after the spin-off.
