Project: Quanta Computers, Inc. Factory Remodel / Factory Design, Industrial Tenant Improvement, Office Remodel

An approximately 66,000 sf / $4M factory remodel project for Quanta Computers, Inc., in Fremont, CA. This was a multi-phase two-year project that involved mechanical, electrical, structural, egress, lighting, and accesibility upgrades to an existing building tilt-up concrete building with a wood-framed roof. The factory's production equipment was not part of the cost of this project. This work was done while an existing factory was in operation and was phased-out while the new construction was built.
