Chesapeake Energy Corporation
Building 12

Chesapeake Energy Corporation is one of the largest producers of oil and natural gas in the United States. Headquartered in Oklahoma City, the company’s operations are focused on using unconventional methods to discover and develop its large and geographically diverse resource base of onshore natural gas and oil assets in the U.S., making it a leader in the movement to reduce U.S. dependency on foreign energy. Often included in Fortune magazine’s list of “100 Best Companies to Work For,” Chesapeake has deployed a three-tiered approach to fostering development, which includes serving as an economic catalyst through job creation and investment; building strong relationships and open lines of communication to address community concerns; and contributing to the community through its giving programs, scholarships and volunteering.

From its modest beginning with a single 6,000-square-foot office building in 1989, Chesapeake has built one of the premier corporate working environments in the United States. Its well-designed, beautifully landscaped 120-acre campus features 2.2 million square feet of office space that has been developed using a modern interpretation of Georgian-style architecture reminiscent of the 1700s and 1800s in the Chesapeake Bay region. The campus features state-of-the-art resources such as an on-site Reservoir Technology Center and rock lab, 3-D visualization room and two theater-style presentation facilities. In addition, employees enjoy world-class amenities like five on-site restaurants, serving serve a variety of gourmet cuisine; a 72,000-square-foot fitness facility; a health clinic; pharmacy and a 63,000-square-foot child development center.​​​​

Offering a unique blend of visual architecture and multi-use functionality, Building #12 blends seamlessly amidst the Chesapeake campus and provides a diverse gathering space for employees and guests. Built on a curvature following the natural bend of a creek that runs through the campus, Building #12 is a four-story structure with two floors above and two below grade. This 44,000 square foot facility includes a kitchen and restaurant for breakfast, lunch and catering for company events. Also included are multiple board rooms, a 144-seat banquet room and a 243-seat, stadium-style multimedia room.

Smith & Pickel Construction is proud to have served and continue to be relied upon as Chesapeake’s preferred general contractor.
