Alliance Resource group is the third-largest coal producer in the eastern United States. With operations in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland and West Virginia, Alliance has called Lexington home for their regional headquarters for many years. The company needed to consolidate and expand its Lexington headquarters, so integrity/Architecture was commissioned to create a design that embodied the hardworking, employee-centered energy the company displays. Their new property is located in the geometric center of Beaumont Circle.
Design elements have evolved around an open floor plan concept while private, enclosed spaces are mostly internalized to allow natural light to penetrate deep into the heart of building. The exterior is meant to establish a strong identity while maintaining a modest appearance. We and the construction manager are working together with Alliance to fast-track the building process leveraging early release bid packages to expedite foundation and steel trades. Alliance will open its doors in 2014 and reinforce its identity as one of the strongest contributing members to the Lexington community and University of Kentucky.
