Gresham Smith provided architectural design, engineering, construction administration and field construction coordination support services for the renovation of an existing manufacturing facility. The manufacturing plant area was completely cleared of existing piping and utility systems, and new facility utility systems were installed—including electrical power systems upgrade, lighting, compressed air system, Argon piping distribution, HVAC, and fire protection systems. The new utility systems support the installation of new equipment that was installed, including 3D metal printers, ovens, furnaces and material handling. A new customer experience center was constructed in the front of the building. It includes conference rooms, lobby space, A/V elements, a kitchen and coffee bar.
