A centerpiece of Baltimore’s Harbor Point revitalization project, Exelon’s new 440,000 square-foot headquarters is home to the energy giant’s wholesale, retail and renewable energy operations as well as its Baltimore-based administrative offices.
Exelon was determined to showcase forward-looking technology and sustainability, which led them to pursue LEED Platinum certification for this project. In addition to influencing interior design choices such as the utilization of reclaimed wood from the docks and walkways of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, this commitment to community and environmentally friendly design choices led them to choose Tate’s access floors and high-end architectural finishes.
Utilizing a raised access floor system allowed Exelon to capture their desired aesthetic while still utilizing both underfloor power and data distribution systems, as well as an underfloor air distribution system which will optimize the air quality and individual comfort for both the 600-seat central trading floor and the workplaces of the building’s approximately 1,500 employees.
The modular floor design played a role in capitalizing on the stunning views of the Baltimore harbor and the surrounding revitalized Harbor East neighborhood, underscoring the company’s connection to the local community.
Exelon’s Baltimore headquarters is the largest LEED Platinum certified project in the mid-Atlantic region.
