Corporate Campus

Southwest Airlines Network Operations Center

Dallas, Texas/97,420 SF

Southwest’s blast-resistant Network Operations Center (NOC) is the nerve center of the headquarters campus. The facility supports the carrier’s flight operations management, scheduling, dispatch, and maintenance for its fleet of more than 730 aircraft serving 101 destinations and over 4,000 departures daily. The Headquarters Emergency Command Center (HECC) provides communications and logistical support during emergency operations. Heightened security measures and the hardening of structural and building systems, including redundant electrical and HVAC, will allow Southwest to maintain uninterrupted flight operations during a wide range of natural disasters and man-caused catastrophes. The striking blue glow of the NOC was designed to create a calming environment and reduce eye strain. The NOC achieved LEED Silver certification.
