Bound by neighboring structures, lack of parking and nowhere to grow, Florida Marine Transporters presented the design challenge of expanding their current facility by creating a secure campus environment and a desire to showcase their advanced technologically based maritime service.  This had to be achieved while remaining operational in their existing building.



solution_2.jpg

After purchasing select neighboring parcels, the design team was able to reallocate function, redirect vehicular transportation and strategically expand their facility while minimally disturbing the daily operations of the company who remained in site throughout construction.  Phasing construction helped displace only a few employees of their existing 80,000 square foot facility.  The additional 30,000+ square foot building tied in via a 2-story atrium providing a clear and secure entry point to the campus. 

Creative design also allowed for continued use of an existing elevator and prevented the increase construction cost of an additional elevator in the new building.  The use of Interior Modular Construction also gives this user the ability to reconfigure and continuingly service their needs as their company evolves. 

It features spacious workplace environments varying from private offices to workstations, a state of the art Operations Center and a tech-savvy state of the art Conference Room surrounded in switch glass.  This installation is only the third largest in the country for linear footage of switch glass.  The project was completed for approximately $9 Million and in 15 months by Kent Design Build.

This organization and its employees suffered from a common problem in rapidly growing companies – lack of efficient space.  This client’s challenge consisted of designing a cost effective and innovative interior buildout in an established multi-story building design while working within the parameters of a set lease.  Meanwhile, the tenant’s vision varied from the landlord’s vision for the space.  How can both be satisfied?



solution_2.jpg

In keeping with their forward thinking business model, Greenleaf Lawson Architects worked with Netchex to design a space that follows the new workplace trends; including open/shared work environments with collaborative spaces and minimal private offices through the use of Interior Modular Construction.  This building system provides flexibility for the tenant and ease of mind for the landlord. The walls can be reconfigured at any time and in any way to continually serve the space.

As in the case of many new corporate headquarters, a company has outgrown their current space.  In the case of this project, not only was growth an issue but improving spaces to cultivate increased collaboration, improve productivity and overall provide spaces that attract bright tech-based employees. … And do it quickly!



solution_2.jpg

The owner-provided budget of $12 Million for construction and an additional $3 Million for fixtures, furnishings and equipment was not flexible.  Nor was the completion date for the 65,000 SF corporate headquarters.  GLA has worked closely with Donahue Favret Construction in a Design-Build manner to provide the client Pre-Construction Services prior to design document completion.  The project was priced within budget and remains to be the case thanks to that process.  No true “value engineering” phase occurred allowing the design team to maintain the schedule originally set as well as the aesthetic desired.

Petro Guardian provided a challenge that was to take a 19,000 SF existing bank building which consisted of 3 individual Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings pieced together over time, and convert it into a fully functional, cohesive and efficient office building for a company that provides lightning protection for the oil and gas industries among other things. The existing bank building was a maze of private offices, outdated finishes and inefficient circulation. Because the building was built in different parts over time, there was no consistency in the building. The interior of the building received almost no natural light as the building had very few windows giving the space a very enclosed and entrapped feel. The exterior was poorly executed brick and metal panel that needed some attention.


Petro-Guardian-Web-Resolution-03.jpg

The solution GLA thought up consisted of first opening up the exterior walls to allow natural light into the building. We converted whole sections of private offices into common areas which were accompanied by a pod of offices. The common areas served as areas for the employees to gather and were centrally located to their offices. This promoted collaboration but also allowed the natural light from the exterior faces to flow into corridors and other parts of the building. The exterior of the building received a refresh with some simple finishes. Interior finishes were updated and provided a visual consistency throughout the building that was not present before.  GLA worked closely with AOS in order to provide a a full furniture package. This allowed for a custom, unique and updated furniture solution for the client that best suited their needs.
