Express Scripts Headquarters

St. Louis, Missouri

Christner designed two buildings for this Fortune 100 Company. Phase 1, accommodating a staff of 1,750, comprises 340,000 sf. We used a pinwheel plan of flexible office space configured around a central conference hub on each floor. With private offices on the interior, all employees have access to daylight and views. A three-story atrium with monumental stair creates a dramatic focal point and connects various departments. Phase II adds 200,000 sf of office space. The corporate campus is supported by a central conference and dining center occupying the lower level of the Phase 1 building.

Sustainability played a key role in the design of the new headquarters. All employees have access to daylight and views, enclosed spaces use motion-sensor lighting, and sustainable materials such as linoleum, bamboo and cork are used throughout the building.

Size: 540,000 sf
Status: Completed 2010 (Phases I & II), LEED Certified - New Construction (Phase I), LEED Gold Certified - New Construction (Phase II)
Awards:
2008 Excellence in Design Awards Honorable Mention, Commercial Category, Environmental Design + Construction
2007 Design-Build Award of Merit, Mid-America DBIA
2007 Construction Keystone Award Associated General Contractors of St. Louis

It’s very, very egalitarian...and it’s very much designed to promote collaboration.
