The showroom and office renovation consisted of approximately 18,000 SF of phased demolition and new finishes including upgraded mechanical controls and energy efficient lighting to comply with California Title 24 Energy Standards. Construction was phased to allow the showroom and offices to remain in operation at a reduced scale during construction. Office renovations resulted in consolidated operations spaces utilizing several components saved during demolition such as worktops, shelving, doors and frames, and re-wired fluorescent light fixtures. Reuse of materials saved over 1,000 lbs. of materials from the landfill. Showroom renovations included new, efficient LED track lighting, ground and polished concrete floors, and salvaged millwork cased openings. Reuse in the showroom resulted in another 1,500 lbs. of materials diverted from landfills.

“With over 1.2 million square feet of high end design space, all with continuing public operations, the Pacific Design Center presented logistical challenges to the Project Team, but nothing they couldn’t handle.”, says Chris Miller, Senior Project Manager, Gilbane Building Company, “We are happy to complete this work for Baker and allow them to cast their furniture in a new light.”
