Due to the location of the addition near the entry to the complex, the project endeavored to create a contemporary addition to the existing industrial building (a pre-engineered metal structure). The project also intended to compliment the main building administrative structure, which is located across an access road, while providing a secondary entrance for employees.
A steel framed masonry and curtainwall veneer single-story design solution was developed to meet aggressive design, schedule, and budget constraints. In addition to 6,000 SF of engineering office and support spaces, the project houses a clinic, fitness center, breakout (collaboration) spaces, and a safety training center. The exterior design blended seamlessly with the contemporary interior, which incorporated corporate branding and influences of biophilic design, creating an inspiring and healthy place to work.
