Cemex USA has officially opened its new US headquarters in Houston. The building’s innovative design pays homage to its history in the cement and building materials industry.
The ribbon cutting marking the opening of the 82 000 ft2 office on the Katy Freeway took place in late January, with President Ignacio Madridejos cutting the ribbon.
Cemex USA occupies two floors of the new building, which is owned and managed by MetroNational. The new space is designed to tell the story of Cemex’s products through the use and display of concrete, cement and aggregates throughout, which gives an industrial feel.
“These new offices show how Cemex USA stands strong,” said Madridejos. “This beautiful building will be part of the community for years and illustrates our commitment to being part of it.”
“This office building was built utilising Cemex concrete for its structure,” said Ed Prins, Cemex USA’s director of real estate. “Additionally, we worked with our architects, Inventure Design of Houston, to showcase the versatility of our products internally, and it illustrates how cement is the foundation of our lives every day.”
“This building has safety built-in, and safety is our number one priority and value,” said Guillermo Martinez-Sans, Cemex USA’s Executive Vice President of Human Resources and Communications. “The layout and modifications of the new headquarters encourage collaboration and enable us to be One Cemex.”
Cemex is also committed to the health and safety of its employees, with each office outfitted with state of the art desks that allow employees to work while sitting or standing, as well as conference rooms that encourage collaboration. A new open office setting ensures each workspace receives sunlight. More than 200 Cemex employees are working in the new Cemex offices.
