The GEO Group Corporate Headquarters

About The Project

Hensel Phelps was the Construction Manager at Risk for the GEO Group’s new seven-story corporate global headquarters in Boca Raton, Florida. The Florida-based company specializes in privatized corrections, detention, and mental health treatment facilities around the world. The new state-of-the-art facility provides space and amenities for more than 300 employees. The fully-integrated Class-A office building includes 106,000 SF of office space on top of three stories of parking garage and houses all their legal, accounting, human resources, and U.S. corrections operations. Each of the top four floors include administrative offices, executive suites, kitchen space, and training rooms. Additional office amenities include an executive board room, a large in-house training room, a club room, BIM/IT production rooms, an in-house call center, and a large indoor and outdoor pre-function/entertainment space on the level four terrace to host company events and entertain clients.


The building is comprised of a concrete frame structure on shallow spread footings and is finished off with a top of the line curtainwall system. A curtainwall system is the outer covering of the building in which the outer walls are non-structural and merely keep the weather out and the occupants in. The all-glass curtainwall makes for a great advantage in that natural light can penetrate deeper within the building. The garage is screened with a specialized Vert-A-Cade screening system that is aesthetically pleasing while it screens activities and vehicles within the garage from view of the general public areas. To increase the buildings aesthetics, white architectural precast and Alucobond paneling in signature “GEO blue” were incorporated into the building’s design to make the building “pop”, especially due to its high visibility being located near Interstate 95.
