RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA

SUMMARY

Davis Kane Architects was commissioned to provide a renovation and building addition design for a flexible office and warehouse space with a data center to manage the digital operations for General Parts’ bussiness. A single-story warehouse was completely renovated to provide two floors of offices within the existing building envelop. The design also included a new entry lobby, elevator and corporate training center as part of an addition to the facility. The corporate training center includes a multi-purpose training room, two breakout meeting rooms, and a catering kitchen. The existing and new structures were unified and insulated with a new cladding facade. Efficient office cubicle area is provided on each floor.
