For these projects, the office space was an adaptive reuse design with the interior fully altered to meet the owner’s requirements. The warehouse joined to the office space was a new “ground-up” construction. We designed both spaces based upon the specific criteria of the ABC County Board and this particular location’s staff. We renovated and re-worked the mail area, lobby area, copy area, office area, and conference room area to meet the work-flow needs of this specific location. We designed and constructed the warehouse and loading area to match ABC’s particular codes and standards for shipping and receiving. Our accessible and functional design balanced the dual functions of this site.
Our Architecture Department became the first firm to have a multi-family residential development approved by the Town of Hillsborough Historic Distric Commission. Summit ensures the ideas, concerns, and feedback of the public and Historical Committee be implemented throughout the process of this project. Although the character of the building is of a contemporary nature, the materials will mimic much of what is in the district such as corrugated metal, masonry, natural siding and glass. The building will have 24 units, and situated next to the existing Sinclair building.
We are the Geotechnical Engineer and Special Inspector of Record for the new Plant Sciences Building on NC State University’s Centennial Campus. This $160,200,000, five-story, 199,000-square-foot building contains research labs, office space, corporate lab/office suites, hearth/atrium space, conference space and rooftop greenhouses. Our services include subsurface drilling, field and laboratory testing of materials, and Special Inspections per Chapter 17 of the North Carolina Building Code. This building will be a state-of-the-art facility to research the challenges of agriculture, agribusiness, food production, disease resistance and climate change. Summit is proud to be a part of this huge step forward into the research of agriculture and sustainability.
