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.
For the warehouse, our architects and designers made the building fit for LEED certification standards and sustained constant distribution activity. For the office, the client had a specific theme requirement for the “look” of the space, which our staff accommodated creatively. The interior includes repurposed flooring from an actual bourbon distillery and artifacts featuring name alcohol brands that are stored on-site. Our architects conducted interviews with ABC staff to determine areas that needed improvements, which areas saw lots of traffic, and which areas needed to have extra security. This enabled us to provide the best new spaces to suit the staff’s practical needs as well.
