Dunn-Edwards | Phoenix, AZ | 304,000 SF
Tenant improvements of an existing 304,000 SF spec industrial building. Deutsch Architecture Group was brought on board the week of purchase to begin creating tenant improvement plans to turn the distribution warehouse into a state of the art environmentally friendly paint manufacturing facility. Tasks included a site plan modification on an expedited schedule through the City of Phoenix to accommodate a railroad spur and an 8,000 SF outside tank farm storage facility. Representatives at Dunn wanted the facility to be LEED certified and also wanted the project delivered utilizing full Building Information Modeling (BIM) by both the design and construction team. Programming meetings with Dunn-Edwards executives, Dunn manufacturing staff from multiple states and key members of the design and construction teams were held in Deutsch’s offices two days a week for approximately six months.
