Transforming Unoccupied Space into Extraordinary Offices:
Battelle operates on the founding principle that science and research can solve problems in the business community and society as a whole. Wilhelm Commercial Builders was privileged to support Battelle’s philosophy by constructing a highly efficient, modern and collaborative work space for its employees that help protect the nation.
From inception to completion, this square foot project allowed Wilhelm to demonstrate its expertise in performing quality construction services essential for building this vastly distinctive, intricate and productive working environment.
Design details that set this space apart from the typical office interiors include the strategically-located radius walls that create separation in an open floor plan; moveable and operable partitions for maximum flexibility; back-painted glass walls, sprayed ceilings with cloud drywall acoustical accents; stained-concrete floors blended with patterned carpeting and other high-end finishes including custom birch millwork, woven wall covering and decorative metal panels with a molten bubble design installed as a backsplash in the spacious kitchen area. But one of the most intriguing focal points within the space is the artistic flagstaff brick tile design that is laid sporadically over a painted write on/wipe off surface surrounded by generous seating for informal meetings or gatherings. But the level of design did not end there, Battelle’s space also incorporated future needs by installing advanced technology, efficient heating and cooling systems and preparations for a secured work environment.
“You can clearly see from the photos (above and below) how much care and preparation the Wilhelm team exercises to protect the space during construction and the spectacular outcome of the final product. Battelle signifies the superior work that Wilhelm produces on a daily basis,” states Dave Jaques, VP of Estimating for Wilhelm.
