Main Corporate Headquarters Building (Building 12): Reflective blue green glazing and metal panel facade/canopies define the main entry of the 2-story, Deckers Corporate Headquarters Building (Building 12). Articulated concrete tilt-up panels consisting of varying horizontal and vertical reveal work create a composition to the facade. Local materials such as Santa Barbara sandstone complete Building 12’s exterior detail. High-end tenant improvements of the 1st floor features a large multi-use rotunda at the main lobby entry with glass surround, intricate wood and granite flooring, floating acoustical wood panel ceiling detail, a cafeteria, training rooms, and a 4,000 s.f. retail store.

Off-Site Work / City of Goleta / Community Benefits: It was important for Deckers to give back to the Santa Barbara community, where the company originally was founded. Working with Deckers, the City of Goleta and its city representatives, Oltmans’ scope of work involved various street improvements including new medians, new landscaping, sidewalks, and a new public transit infrastructure (bus stop). In addition, the project provided new sitting areas, a walking trail, bike paths, sports courts, a water feature and the restored natural wetlands, all of which is open to the public.

The project was completed January 31, 2014.
