This new facility for the educational division of Harcourt consists of the Corporate Headquarters for Psychological Corporation and its scoring and operations facilities. Psychological Corporation is a national company that provides the testing material for many of the nation’s public school systems and private and public corporations. They create the test, distribute the material and score the results of the tests.
The two story, 140,000 SF offices house the administrative and corporate offices and support areas. The first floor features a large cafeteria with outdoor seating spaces, conference and training rooms. The second floor contains additional offices and connects to the operations facility. The 435,000 SF operations center contains the scoring areas of the facility along with the shipping and receiving, printing and computer center.
The building is constructed of concrete tilt-up panels and is located on a large site within an aquifer recharge zone outside of San Antonio.
Both the architect and the general contractor were very responsive to addressing our concerns, and were team oriented. They worked together with us to solve issues with program needs, budget and local construction and approval needs. Both office and operations facility personnel are pleased and proud of the finished project.
-Mr. Jim Hunley, Director of Facilities, Harcourt Assessment
