Charter Communications Corporate Build-Out

Reimagined Headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut

When Charter Communications, a leading US telecommunications provider, required a reimagined headquarters that could better meet the needs of its growth, they set their sights on the build-out of a new corporate complex in Stamford, Connecticut. Working with HLW, McLaren’s structural engineering team provided solutions for the build-to-suit site and its customized interior fit-out modifications.

The 875,000-square-foot campus is comprised of two towers and a three-story connector building with part of the structure positioned atop an existing multi-level post-tensioned concrete parking garage.

Our team provided design recommendations for the podium building (Tower 2) and the connector structure through the schematic level.

Structural Engineering Solutions and Interior Fit-Out Modifications

The customized interior fit-out required various structural modifications and alterations to make the space uniquely Charter Communications. Inside, McLaren provided support for various interior stair designs, dunnage design for MEP equipment support, and the design of structural supports for specialty corporate elements like folding glass doors and accordion walls.

For Charter Communication’s Tower 1, our interior fit-out work consisted mostly of various custom stair designs and accompanying vibration analysis which included work on multi-story monumental stairs.

In the Connector building, an auditorium inspired company hub was developed with a bleacher style stair seating area and guardrail support.

For Building 2, our structural engineers provided various light gauge designs for supporting the slab on metal deck seating area and framing details for the auditorium wrapper and wall assemblies for the 250-person auditorium. Our interior fit-out work also included a catwalk design, additional custom stair designs and supporting a unique roof terrace build-out with cantilevered sunshades.

Charter’s Stamford headquarters now provides employees with a tailored office space of corporate amenities, fitness and health centers, work areas, and a varied multitude of conference and meeting venues across three connected structures.
