Catering, event planning, and food service company Proof of the Pudding relocates its headquarters to West Midtown in Atlanta, GA. Located within a former vacant warehouse, the adaptive reuse of the space includes 13,200 SF of office space and 19,980 SF of warehouse housing high-volume commercial kitchens and support areas.
To ready Proof of the Pudding’s space within the vacant warehouse, showrooms and offices are constructed. Updated MEP infrastructure for the office and commercial kitchen is put in place along with fire protection systems. Proof of the Pudding’s state-of-the-art kitchen incorporates poured urethane flooring, three walk-in coolers, and a walk-in freezer allowing expansive room for storage.
A stairway is constructed connecting the bottom floor office to the top, while two skylights in the stairwell provide natural light to the space. Open office workstations, private offices at the perimeter of the space, and an employee break room complete the bottom floor. The upper office area includes an executive office and reception area. Guests can sample Proof of the Pudding’s catering in their tasting room and show room. Ceilings throughout the space are a combination of acoustical tiles, exposed ceilings, and acoustical baffles.
Security and data cabling are installed to keep the building secure. The roof is partially extended on the exterior of the building, creating a more traditional office look to the warehouse. A partial loading dock extension allows Proof of the Pudding employees to conveniently load vehicles with their catering.
