Swinerton has opened a new 8,535-sf office in Station West, Charlotte’s adaptive reuse development located in the FreeMoreWest neighborhood, that will at as the company’s regional headquarters and accommodate a team that has grown to 90 professionals in commercial interiors, multi-key, office, mass timber, aviation, conditioned storage, and industrial projects.
The adaptive reuse space was designed by Redline Design Group and is located at 901 Berryhill Road. The space features advancements in construction techniques as well as product innovations, including a mass timber mezzanine designed, fabricated, and installed by Swinerton’s mass timber affiliate Timberlab.
The 1,700-sf mezzanine not only serves as a display of Swinerton’s mass timber expertise, but also affords the company space for future expansion and an architectural wood finish often coveted in traditional office environments. Several skylights on the mezzanine level and large windows throughout the space provide an abundance of natural light to support a healthy work environment.
Custom break room booth seating and glass roll-up patio doors provide flexible workplaces away from the desk. Exposed decorative lighting also contributes to the aesthetics of the space, contributing to the home-like ambiance that even includes a kegerator.
“We wanted a workplace that reflects the caliber of product that we consistently deliver to our clients throughout the region and showcases the materials and professionals that bring these superior workspaces to life,” said Jared Hoeflich, Vice President and Division Manager, Swinerton, in a release.
The Station West development includes amenities such as outdoor venues that serve as communal space, adaptive furniture to accommodate different groups and events, complimentary electric bikes, and event space for hosting client or company events.
