Applebee’s Headquarters Construction Complete

Copaken, White & Blitt – in a joint venture with the Allen Group – provided owner representative/project management services for Applebee’s in the design and construction of their new world headquarters in Lenexa, Kansas.

The two-story, 178,000 square foot Restaurant Support Center features open, collaborative workspaces, a 9,793 square foot state-of-the-art culinary center and an environmentally sustainable design.

The Support Center achieved a LEED® Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership and Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) rating system. The building’s sustainable features work together to raise energy efficiency, improve the air quality, increase the natural daylight and minimize operating/maintenance expenses.

In addition, the Support Center was awarded the Kansas City Business Journal Capstone Awards in two categories (Office and Green Design) and J. E. Dunn, the contractor, has been awarded the Excellence in Construction award from the Kansas City Chapter of Construction Specifications Institute.
