Project: Takasago Laboratory & Office Expansion
Rockleigh, NJ - 65,000
Takasago, one of the world's top producers of flavors and fragrances, asked KBD Group to Design-Build the expansion of its American Headquarters, and to upgrade the mechanical & electrical system of the existing building. The project was completed via a phased schedule to keep the existing building fully operational throughout construction.
The 3-story structural steel frame addition is enclosed with insulated metal panels that match the existing 56,000 SF building. To comply with zoning regulations, KBD Group integrated three floors within a 2-story building. Sophisticated MEP equipment was accommodated within the extremely shallow floor-to-floor height by utilizing a composite floor joist structural system that houses all ductwork and piping within the joist structure.
