Smyrna Ready Mix, Corporate Office

Smyrna Read Mix Concrete (SRM) is a family owned and operated ready-mix company founded in Smyrna, Tennessee. The company started with only three trucks in 1999 and today have over 2,500 employees throughout the region. The company’s founders selected EOA to design their first corporate headquarters building to anchor a new 800-acre mixed-use development at the gateway to the small town of Smyrna. The building’s slender exposed concrete columns and curving shapes showcase the concrete material on which the company has been built. In addition, the cantilevered post-tension slabs show the strength and sculptural aspects of concrete.

The vertical layering of the 5-stories of corporate offices mimic the rhythms found in the adjacent stone quarry used by the company. Full glazing was desired to take advantage of the 800-acre vista as well as showcase the structural components.

Boasting unprecedented corporate amenities for the on-site staff as well as their drivers, the first floor includes on-site dining, a fitness facility, training, and community rooms as well as a daycare for 100 of the company and community’s children.
