Swinerton Awarded Construction of Chevron's New Midland Campus

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/13 -- Swinerton Builders Texas is proud to announce that Chevron (NYSE: CVX), a longtime client, has selected Swinerton to build their state-of-the-art office complex and campus in Midland, Texas. The campus will support Chevron's goal of providing a world-class facility for its West Texas Permian Basin operations, allowing them to attract talented new employees and support future growth in Midland. Swinerton is excited to continue their long-lasting relationship with Chevron that began when they built the Standard Oil of California Office Building in the 1920s.

The Chevron Midland Campus, designed by HOK, a leading global design, architecture, engineering and planning firm, is located on 25 acres west of the Scharbauer Sports Complex and will consist of two 4-story buildings connected by a walkway, a fitness center, a cafeteria, a training facility, mission critical components and a central plant, totaling approximately 340,000 square feet, plus a parking structure for over 700 vehicles. The buildings' enclosure will be a unitized, high-performance curtainwall system. Construction is expected to begin mid-summer 2013 with completion anticipated in 2015. The project is slated to achieve a LEED® Gold designation from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

"Swinerton is pleased to again work and collaborate with Chevron and continue our nearly 100-year relationship," said Swinerton's Scott Tomhave, who oversees the Texas operations. "This project is a defining win for continued operations in Texas and showcases our depth of talent, safety record and wide range of services."

Swinerton's outstanding safety record, innovative execution plan, and recent successful experience in Midland were all critical aspects in Chevron's evaluation and selection of the Swinerton team. The project was awarded to and is being managed out of Swinerton's Austin office.
