Lawrence Group Corporate Headquarters

St. Louis, MO

Lawrence Group purchased the Security Building in 2004. After a complete renovation to the core and shell of the 1892 building, we began a gut renovation of our new corporate headquarters. Our construction team worked closely with our designers to deliver the project while remaining fully operational in the space throughout the 36,589 square foot office renovation.

The construction challenge was to create a modern, state-of-the-art interior within the historic framework of the existing building. Modernized systems including HVAC, sprinklers, electrical and technology all were completely integrated into the design to create an effortless appearance to the tenants. Construction detailing was clean, simple and modern and blended perfectly against the traditional wood and detailing of the existing building.

As a sustainable solution, tailored glass partitions from DIRTT were fabricated to create the appearance of floating, transparent conferencing spaces. These transparent spaces were juxtaposed against the historic wood paneling and ornamental ceiling structure, and the attention to detail and coordination during the construction phase was absolutely critical. Security Building is the first historic building in Missouri to receive LEED® Silver certification.
