The Parkwood (First United Bank at Parkwood)

The butterfly roof makes this bank headquarters especially unique.

Default picture

The Parkwood is a 4-story core and shell building that now serves as the headquarters for First United Bank. The defining characteristic of this building is the butterfly roof with a CLT wood accent on the underside. The CLT is continued to the underside of the terrace canopy and teller lane canopy. One of First United Bank's primary needs was for generator power backup for the entire building. To meet that need, a 2.25-MW generator backs up the building through a combination service disconnect + ATS equipment. Because this building is located in Plano, TX, with stringent sound ordinances, we coordinated with a sound consultant to select and specify the required sound enclosure and muffler for the generator. HVAC is served by four 105-ton rooftop units, with one dedicated to each floor. Purdy-McGuire also provided MEP design services for the corporate interiors finishout for First United Bank, which occupies most of the building.
