In an effort to consolidate operations from nine regional facilities into a single complex in the center of Detroit, Compuware hired Walbridge to manage construction of its flagship, 1.1 million-square-foot headquarters. The award-winning 17-story complex, now known as One Campus Martius, and attached parking structure offers corporate offices, street-level retail and restaurant space, food court, wellness center, daycare, 30,000-square-foot data center, and other supporting spaces.
Use of stone, finished metals and high performance glass systems accentuate the sophistication of the building, while ensuring durability. The 14-story glass atrium provides unparalleled grandeur, opening to the historic Campus Martius Park and fountain.
Features of the project include a 38,000-square-foot fitness center, 18-classroom day care center with an 8,000-square-foot playdeck, an expansive food court, employee lounges and work areas, conference and training rooms and an auditorium.
The building also houses a 42,000-square-foot data center. Roughly 15,000 square feet of the Tier-III rated data center is dedicated to computer space and boasts a raised floor. Another 27,000 square feet houses a technical library for computer system operations. Compuware’s data center, with its N+1 redundancy design, can handle a 900-kilowatt critical load and features a 1,400-kilowatt uninterruptible power supply and 2MW backup diesel generator.
