RMS specializes in the contract manufacturing of complex, tight tolerance medical device implants and surgical instruments. Progressive Architecture worked with RMS to create an addition to their manufacturing complex.
Working in conjunction with the owner and contractor; Progressive Architecture kept within a specified budget and time frame to produce the new addition. The building was created out of very economical pre-cast concrete panels to quickly and efficiently erect the structure. The outcome was a more efficient space for a growing company.
Originally constructed in 1963, this parking garage is actually a multi-use structure. In addition to the 112 parking stalls, it houses a 4-bay loading dock and an 8.3 mega-watt emergency power plant, both of which serve the adjacent 830,000 square foot high rise building.
The concrete parking decks had weathered and deteriorated to the point that they were considered unsafe. After Progressive Architecture conducted an extensive pre-design study to determine the most suitable course of action for this facility, the Owner elected to salvage the building due to the mission critical nature of the other uses housed within the building. The parking portion of the building was gutted to the structural steel frame and reconstructed.
This plastic molding company’s success necessitated expansion into another building on their campus. As their clients are major medical companies, they wanted to ratchet up their image to appeal to their clientele subliminally.
Although budget conscious, Progressive Architecture was able to design the space with refurbished work stations, a current color palette and edgy materials that reflected the Owner’s interest in aviation.
