The new national headquarters for Monitronics is a 3-story 165,000SF build-to-suit facility in Billingsley Company’s Mercer Crossing Business Park. The building, also developed by Billingsley, includes a 24/7 operations center and numerous amenities for Monitronics’ 1,300 employees. GFF provided master planning, architectural and interior design services. The building sits along the lake edge to maximize water views and highway visibility. The lakeside setting influenced the linear configuration of the building. The offset wings articulate the main entrance, marked by a composite metal frame and large expanse of glass that includes the lobby and a stair, making the main entry plaza more dynamic. The painted concrete wall utilizes a precise rhythm of windows within a master grid that threads through the window wall at the center of the building.
