The Blue Cross Blue Shield headquarters, situated atop Cameron Hills, provides its employees a stunning view of downtown Chattanooga and The Tennessee River. Accommodating approximately 4,500 workers, the 950,000 square foot office building offers enhanced daylight penetration while boasting an annual saving of over 20 million gallons of water.  Five buildings radiate outward from the crest of the hill, encircling a central public plaza like individuals coming together as a community.. A spine of skybridges and canopied walkways provide easy movement between buildings. A central glass-canopied plaza creates a major gathering place. As the nation's second largest LEED Gold accredited corporate campus, it demonstrates how a transformative project of this scale can attain a high level of sustainability and become a model for future development in its community.  This project is a Skanska IFE Award Winner.
