Origen Financial chose Mercantile Center’s Mercantile II Building in Fort Worth as the home for their North Texas operations. Bob Moore Construction worked with Hardy McCullah/MLM Architects, client representative CBRE from Dallas, Texas, and property owner Mercantile Partners to finish out the 40,000 SF suite while constructing the building shell.
Origen chose this facility based on previous experience with Mercantile Partners and the opportunity to incorporate various tenant improvements directly into the shell’s development, using value-engineering to create a finished suite with extremely focused features that looks very upscale. Bob Moore Construction was already selected as the general contractor for Mercantile II, an 80,000 SF tilt-up construction building in Fort Worth’s Mercantile Park.
The resulting suite provides a quality balance of comfort, functionality and polished presentation. A large open area stocked with ergonomically designed modular furniture and 22 enclosed offices dominate the Origen suite’s work space. The facility includes a substantial network infrastructure, including a computer center with its own environmental and power control systems. The entire facility has its own power backup and can continue to operate even with a loss of electricity to the building. Visitors are welcomed in a finely finished reception area with a split wood / carpet floor pattern, and other special rooms include a large training area with raised access flooring, multiple conference rooms and a boardroom with staggered pattern plank flooring and a suspended diffused lighting fixture. A large, spacious break room provides kitchen facilities, vending machines and modern furniture decor.
