Atlantic Packaging, a leader in packaging materials, equipment, engineering and technical resources, receives a 68,000-SF interior renovation in their Charlotte, NC office. The existing lobby and office space are demolished to create the new building entrance to the Packaging Solutions Center. The old manufacturing area is gutted to allow for the construction of the Packaging Solutions Center which showcases Atlantic Packaging’s products, equipment, and packaging engineering capabilities to potential and existing clients. The test center hosts unit-load testing equipment from Lansmont and TEAM that simulates real-world transit conditions. Lansmont and TEAM are renowned leaders in vibration and impact testing for NASA and the U.S. Military.
The Packaging Solutions Center incorporates concrete polished floors, butt-glazed storefront system, plus an underground ductal power supply and compressed air system to feed each piece of robotic equipment on display. The renovated lobby boasts wood slat cloud system ceilings and a built-in 1,000-gallon salt water aquarium. Oversized Dekton tile panels wrap the lobby’s interior walls and the building’s exterior columns, giving the appearance of a solid rock wall. Interior steel mezzanines are installed to provide two additional floors of office space.
As a fast-track project, the team worked diligently to ensure completion under budget and ahead of schedule. Consistent coordination and communication between Choate and Atlantic Packaging was an integral part of this project’s success.
