This cutting edge facility houses laboratories and manufacturing space for the development of high technology ceramic products and provides office space for executives and staff. Field inspection of existing equipment, including rapid prototype machines, CNC equipment, hot presses, and machine shop equipment, was performed to ensure that all pieces are properly accommodated. Process piping for deionized water, nitrogen and argon gasses, compressed air, and natural gas run throughout the manufacturing area. Isolation pads are used under the equipment to minimize vibration transfer through the facility. The office area includes private offices, an open office space with systems furniture and a large conference room. While security is a major concern within this industry, the design incorporates the necessary systems while projecting an open and welcoming presence.
