Hanna Oil & Gas

Fort Smith, AR : Completed May 2006


This 18,200 square foot office building was one of the most elaborate and interesting buildings our firm has ever had the pleasure to build.  The building design connects the nature of the Hanna Oil & Gas business through elaborate rock work, wood work, fossils and numerous other details throughout the building.


The exterior design of the building is inspired by the look of traditional Canadian lodges, and is built with a combination of rock, brick and cast stone accents. In contrast, the large, arch-top windows give an inviting and airy ambience to the structure’s outward façade.


The interior design has an “arts and crafts” theme, which is first introduced in its impressive main entry doors, made of African mahogany wood. Similarly, the halls are graced with tall, eight-foot mahogany doors. Many of the rooms boast 11-foot ceilings, and custom wood millwork can be found throughout.


Thirty-two private offices are housed within the structure, many enclosed with glass fronts surrounded by heavy mahogany frames. The executive and management offices feature wood ceilings, as well as mahogany beams and wainscoting. The executive wing features exposed, heavy timber trusses, while many to the offices contain magnetic walls, suitable for holding maps or other information. Finally, the conference room and the lobby are lit by the glow of stunning light fixtures, custom-made for this building.


Extra amenities include a fitness room with showers, a break room with kitchen, and a conference room with a large rock fireplace, while skylights bring natural light into the interior workspaces.
