Project: 129 Laurel Street / Commercial Office Building Design, Tenant Improvement, T1

Southward & Associates needed to improve the space utilization in their existing building and expand into to a neighboring building without interrupting their tax accounting business.  We designed a continuous space using the two buildings, gutted one building at a time, modified the structure of both buildings to join them together, moved the employees between the buildings as work progressed during the off-season, and completed the entire project before tax time began.

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.
