Baker Electronics Facility
This facility for a high tech aircraft and marine electrical components manufacturer allowed the consolidation and merger of administrative, engineering, and manufacturing components. The size of the project allowed the use of a tilt wall system that was economical and fast. The incorporation of insulation into the construction of the structural wall panels sped up construction and allowed painted concrete to become the durable wall finish inside and out. The introduction of “light boxes” at intervals provides the relief of light and views, and contributes to the continued usability of the building by providing access points for future floor plan reconfigurations.
