Projects | Office Buildings

Office building and corporate campus construction is a constant activity. From offices and research labs to high end class ‘A’ company headquarters, we look after design conception, programming requirements and even interior decorating and finish selections. Recently, Reliance’s newly constructed office buildings have been LEED certified as clients become more willing to marginally increase hard construction costs in order to generate a benefit to the environment while lowering operating costs.

Working with developers, REIT’s, pension funds or intended occupants, we build some six to ten office facilities every year, each representing between 35,000 and 600,000 square feet of interior space and contract values between $4,000,000.00 and $200,000,000.
