Centene East Coast Headquarters

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 / 7

Centene Corporation, a leading multi-national healthcare enterprise, is investing more than $1 billion to develop an 80-acre campus that will accommodate approximately 6,000 employees when completed.

This development will feature office space, an early childhood development center, a training center, as well as walking trails and water features. The design will preserve and take advantage of the campus’s environment with an emphasis on providing open spaces and natural light, and embracing the site’s natural features.

The construction will occur over several years in multiple phases. Work on phase 1 will begin August 1, 2020 and will include the main 770,000 square-foot building and a 2,400-space parking garage.

Clayco will be responsible for construction and sitework and Rafco Properties is managing the overall development as project manager. Architecture, interiors, and planning firm LS3P is the architect and interior designer; LandDesign is the site planner; and Uzun+Case is the structural engineer. Syska Hennessy Group will be providing the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection engineering.

“We are proud to collaborate again with Centene Corporation as they expand their presence with this dynamic project,” said Clayco Executive Chairman and Founder Bob Clark. “We are bringing together a strong team that will succeed in meeting Centene’s high standards and growth needs.”
