W2A Design Group provided preliminary design services for a new Research & Development building for Fluortek on their existing campus. In addition to R & D, the building was also to be utilized for small production runs, training and administrative offices. The proposed new stand-alone building is three stories with approximately 5,000 SF per floor. Positioned on a sloped site, the lower level would be open to grade with a drive-in service entry, connected by an access drive from an existing parking lot. The public entrance is at the second floor at the level of a new parking lot.The building was to project a contemporary high-tech image utilizing metal panels and ample glass, while limiting visibility into the building in order to preserve classified processes and information.
In addition to the design of the building, W2A’s involvement with Fluortek included preparation of presentation-level plans and renderings for internal and external marketing purposes. W2A also prepared an order of a magnitude construction cost estimate.
