This commercial headquarters and manufacturing facility is designed with employee amenities as a priority to help attract and retain highly skilled staff. Large community spaces provide a variety of ways to work and act as break-out spaces for the office, training, and assembly programs. Spaces are designed to be egalitarian, to increase interaction, collaboration, and communication in the shared spaces for employees and management. Environmental and energy issues are addressed through vertical and horizontal exterior aluminum sunshades, a tightly insulated metal building skin. Full reflective glazing controls excess solar heat gain, while reflective roofing material reduces heat island effect. Guided by the specifics of place and purpose, commercial architects craft distinctive and dynamic design, heightening the experience of the everyday. The building follows healthy building practices, providing extensive daylighting and views to the exterior for every employee, no matter their station. Phase II planned for robotic assembly and provided extensive solar canopies for employee car charging.
