Ingersoll Rand, a $13 billion global industrial company, has selected Choate Interiors again for a fast-track, Design-Assist project at its corporate headquarters in Davidson, North Carolina. The company is relocating many of its executives and their families to Davidson in an effort to consolidate offices. The consolidation effort at the Davidson Campus will span several years and require numerous projects.
This project occurs in Building A and consists of 48,500 SF of total renovated space. The space can accommodate 270 employee offices. Work includes the addition of an 11,500-SF structural steel mezzanine with side-access stairs and center-radius stairs. The stainless steel railing at the stairs leads to steel-painted handrails and cable railings around the perimeter of the mezzanine. The mezzanine opens to T5 suspended lighting and skylights. This area can have up to 88 work stations for employee offices.
The majority of the spaces in the 37,000-SF lower level contain additional work stations, but there are also 39 enclosed offices, six conference rooms, bathrooms, break room, and two training rooms. The area has a raised carpeted floor for electrical and data access. All interior walls are a movable Haworth system with glass side lights and doors.
In addition to the interior renovation, modifications to two sides of the exterior accommodates new storefront glass walls, windows, new entrances, masonry veneer, sun shades and painting. The project requires a Change of Use permit with the City, which requires additional code compliant upgrades to rated demising walls, roof insulation, fire proofing, etc. Mechanical upgrades consist of four new Trane rooftop units, boilers; and new electrical and plumbing systems.
