Sammons Financial

FormanFord worked closely with the Weitz Construction team on the design build project Sammons Financial. Sammons Financial is one of the largest privately held companies in the US. This is a six-story, 217,000 square foot project, that also includes a two-story amenity area for employees and guests.

About This Project

The overall construction for this building took 18 months to complete, with FormanFord's scope of work taking just 8 months. The exterior of Sammons Financial consists of a custom color curtainwall, a pre-glazed window wall, metal panel windscreens, automatic sliders, thermal doors, custom decorative metal, glass railings at the balconies, and ACM panels. The interior includes custom all glass handrails / guardrails, heavy glass walls, back painted glass, and aluminum framed office fronts. One of the highlights of this project is the exterior glass, it is Sage Electrochromic (it changes colors and controls amount of light and heat transmitted). The Sage glass was pre-glazed and pre-wired in our Des Moines fabrication shop leading to a streamlined delivery and rapid field installation.
