This conversion of an abandoned dietary supplement production facility into a new headquarters for the Built Bar protein bar company required extensive demolition and remodeling to accommodate the company’s 300-ft-long production lines. Years of heavy use by the former tenant yielded unforeseen conditions during demolition that included ducts clogged with supplement powder and drain lines blocked with gel.
New mechanical and electrical infrastructure upgrades as well as exterior improvements such as durable and low-maintenance metal cladding and glazing were completed on a six-month permit-to-occupancy schedule. The newly transformed space is a lively and inviting work environment, complete with a new exterior entryway, reception area, restrooms, conference rooms, a quality-control lab and open work and manufacturing space that can generate 30,000 protein bars per hour at full capacity.
