We are providing Architectural Design, Civil Engineering, Structural Design, and Construction Administration services for this 7,350 SF ABC Liquor Store (4,275 SF Sales Floor) in Orange County, NC. Located near the prominent intersection of I-85 and I-40, this ongoing project requires us to balance the commercial functions of a store with the industrial functions of a warehouse.
The owner of this project had multiple requests of our team. The owner wished for transparency at the front entry to incorporate natural lighting, which we achieved with near floor to ceiling clerestory windows. We also satisfied the owner’s request for a pronounced entry feature delineating the sales floor from the warehouse area to keep customer traffic moving in the right direction.
The style of the building channels the owner’s desire for a mountain-architecture feel and a curved roof. The roof that splays out on the Oakdale Drive side serves multiple purposes: first, it is a prominent design element, but also provides solar shade for the storefront and weather protection for pedestrian traffic. It is an example of our ability to address practical needs with aesthetically pleasing solutions.
We provided architectural design, structural and geotechnical engineering and civil/site design services for this proposed 20,000 square-foot (+/-) Class A Office Building located in Hillsborough, North Carolina. The building could potentially hold up to three different businesses in distinctive suites, yet the interiors of those spaces are suited for flexible collaboration between employees.
We are the current Architect of Record for the State Employees' Credit Union. Our architecture team developed three (3) new prototypes for North Carolina locations ranging from 6,500 square feet to 10,000 square feet. Each location requires different services and different qualifications which meant our teams quickly learned how to adapt to our client’s needs on the ground.
The Orange County ABC project consisted of designing and constructing a new, 14,250-square-foot warehouse and upfitting the existing office building. This location serves as the storage and central distribution point for all Orange County ABC locations, so it needed to fulfill both its warehouse functions and the necessary office functions in a fast-paced, demanding environment.
