Project Description

Raymond James Tower IV

RS&H has provided architecture and engineering services to Raymond James for more than 20 years. As the architect for this corporate headquarters campus, RS&H has been involved with a multitude of assignments from design of new office towers to packing desks and interior renovations.

Raymond James Tower IV is an iconic, nine-story office building and data center that includes a tier classroom/training facility and a two-story link building connecting Tower III and Tower IV. The classroom can accommodate up to 450 people and be broken down into nine individual classrooms. The link serves as a secure access control point into both Tower III and Tower IV. The 26-acre site has been master planned to include an additional Tower V containing approximately 300,000 square feet and another 1,000-car parking garage.

RS&H designed building systems that include a water cooled self-contained DX mechanical system, on-grade cooling towers, and two air handling units on each floor with a variable air volume air distribution system and a direct digital controls system. The electrical system provides separate metering within the building complex with a diesel generator and UPS system. The entire building has raised floors with a ten-foot power grid, enabling flexibility with modular furniture systems.

The Raymond James Tower IV project was designed and built on a fast track schedule within an 18 month schedule.
