The PGA Tour has called Ponte Vedra Beach home since the 1970s. Since that time, its headquarters have ballooned to 17 buildings spanning throughout the city. In 2018, the Tour unveiled plans to consolidate all 750 area employees under one solar-powered roof. Nestled within the lush Floridian landscape and surrounded by freshwater wetlands, the 187,000 square-foot building drew inspiration from nature and the iconic 17th hole ‘Island Green’ at THE PLAYERS Stadium Course. This design also preserves the existing wetlands.
Featuring two three-story buildings and a connecting atrium, the facility includes:
- Six wellness centers.
- Cycling and yoga studio
- Four outdoor terraces
- 150 display screens
- Integrative conference rooms
The new Global Home embodies a sense of openness and transparency, boasting five 1,400 square-foot skylights. Illuminated with natural light, the Grand Atrium, which reaches 44 feet tall at its highest point, connects the North and South Buildings and provides a central communal space for colleagues to gather. Desired Energy Efficiency goals were initiated by installing 8,000 square feet of state-of-the-art solar panels.
Miller Electric was involved with every phase of construction, utilizing multiple teams to act as a full-service solution provider for The PGA. In addition to the electrical scope, our teams handled the Audio/Visual elements of the facility, including the installation of multiple LED video-wall displays, conference room scheduling systems, sound masking devices, and mass notification integrations. They also installed security systems, including access control points and video surveillance throughout the property.
The 65 million dollar project was completed in January of 2021, just in time for the much-anticipated The PLAYER Championship in March. There was no better way to celebrate the project’s completion than alongside clients, family, and friends at the initial inspiration itself, the ‘Island Green’ at hole 17.
