Chesapeake Energy Campus
Oklahoma City, OK
Scope: 235,392 Sq. Ft. Underground parking (2 levels) for 395 spaces with connections to Building 7 and Building One
History of the Site:
The original site is a 1970’s office park development called 3 Chopt Square. As the Chesapeake Central Campus has grown, additional parking is required to support the new office buildings. Since this site is a focal point, it was decided to construct a grass playing field over 2 levels of parking.
Chesapeake’s rooftop athletic field not only brings aesthetic appeal to the streets of OKC, green roofing is a fantastic way to reduce the heat island effect of urban areas and capture storm water while creating enjoyable space for residents and employees. The environmental impact of a green roof is undeniable, adding significantly to the LEED Point system designed by the USGBC in all five major areas: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality. Green roofing replaces the green space displaced by a building, prevents excess storm water drainage, reduces the temperature of a building and the urban heat island effect, protects and extends the useful life of a roof, and reduces energy demands.
