McAfee Corporate Headquarters

Plano, Texas

GFF provided master planning for a multi-phase 416,000 SF corporate campus and design of a 170,000 SF, highly critical data center and regional office. One of only two data centers in the world providing continuous support and connectivity for NAI’s popular McAfee virus protection software, this building features dual electrical service from separate substations, independent ALPHA BRAVO electrical service to each individual server, a compartmentalized transformer/ generator array and special performance commissioning. The headquarters component includes engineering labs, a customer care center, an executive briefing center and a corporate cafeteria. The design solution was a disciplined and rational two-winged building which eroded into a lobby of curving ribbons of steel and glass curtainwall at the intersection if the building pods.
