Citgo Petroleum Corporation Headquarters is located in Houston, Texas. The installation job consisted of four and a half floors, roughly 200,000 square feet of both carpet and luxury vinyl tile. The client wanted an upgrade to the flooring that was aesthetically pleasing, functional, and successful in wayfinding for the campus. Citgo's vision also included using the company's branding colors, orange and blue. The building is made of two wings with a connector in the middle of each floor. Each wing was assigned a color, orange or blue, and each type of corridor had a pattern strategy. The connector’s flooring is solid gray. As a user walks further from the connectors into the wings, the orange or blue tile is sprinkled throughout the gray. Once you reach the interior corridors of each wing, the carpet tiles are fully colored tile, orange or blue with little gray showing. This gives the users an easy idea of where they are located in the building at all times.
Unique Installation Challenge Strategy
Citgo Petroleum Corporation's headquarters had many challenges during the flooring renovation process. To begin, the building was fully occupied throughout the demolition and installation. Because of this, furniture lifts were used in all phases of the project. Citgo also had a very quick schedule they were trying to obey. 2 different installation teams were used to complete 200,000 square feet of flooring in 4 weeks.
