Hogan Debuts New Global Headquarters in Downtown Tulsa

Last Thursday we officially debuted our new 35,000-square-foot global headquarters in downtown Tulsa with a grand opening celebration attended by Tulsa’s top business and community leaders.

The $15-million facility was a collaborative effort of multiple Tulsa-based companies, including Selser Schaefer Architects and Flintco handling the building design and construction, and is the largest new office construction project to be completed in downtown Tulsa in more than two years.

“Our rapid growth in recent years required us to start looking for new space, but what we had in mind simply didn’t exist in Tulsa,” Hogan Chief Operating Officer Aaron Tracy said. “So, when we discovered this empty tract of land at First and Greenwood, we immediately went to work on securing it.”

The building, featuring a Herman Miller living office concept that fosters a creative and collaborative atmosphere, is the first of its kind in the Midwest. The exterior design of the new facility offers a sleek, modern look while also drawing inspiration from its environmental surroundings.

Another integral part of the building design was the rooftop garden and terrace that provides an outdoor space overlooking the Tulsa skyline to entertain both employees and guests.

“At Hogan, we strongly adhere to a ‘work hard, play hard’ philosophy, and that’s one of the key reasons we put so much of an emphasis on the rooftop,” Tracy said. “This new space allows our employees to unplug and work from anywhere in the building, but also on top of it. In addition, because we have clients and partners from nearly 60 countries, the rooftop terrace gives us a first-class venue to entertain our guests from all over the world.”

To add the finishing touches to the building, we commissioned both local and international artists to apply their unique styles to the building design. In October, we brought in world-renowned artist Shantell Martin to complete three large-scale projects within the building incorporating her style of a mediation of lines with black markers on white surfaces.

In our Gallery on Greenwood located on the west side of the building, we hired Tulsa-based artists Chris Wollard, RC Morrison, and Andrew Harmon to construct a 12-foot-tall transparent, LED-lit sculpture, titled “Cristallum,” that features more than 15-million light combinations.

“As a Tulsa company doing work all over the world, it was important for us to highlight our local and global presence,” Tracy said. “We take great pride in our Tulsa roots and the reputation we’ve built on a global scale, and we were able to apply that through art and the creativity of Shantell, Chris, RC, and Andrew.”

Our new headquarters was designed to accommodate anticipated company growth, and to also attract and retain talent from across the world.

“We are proud to be Tulsans and we’re determined to keep our talented young professionals here and offer them opportunities that they might think only exist in cities like Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, or New York City,” Tracy said. “We will use this facility to recruit the most talented people regardless of location.”

While a global company, our new facility is symbolic of our continued commitment to remain located in Tulsa.
