Project Owner: Ali North America
Designer: Walter, Robbs, Callahan & Pierce
Frank L. Blum Construction Company was selected as the design-builder for the North American headquarters for the Ali Group, the parent company of many notable commercial kitchen brands such as Beverage Air, Champion, and Carpigiani.
The building includes 10,450 square-feet of primarily open office space and 11,800 square-feet of research and development space. The office space is designed to offer natural light and exterior views to all building occupants and is extremely energy efficient. A white noise was incorporated in the open office areas to limit noise transmission between work stations.
The research and development space houses four state-of-the-art testing chambers that are constructed to meet stringent FDA guidelines and multiple heavy foundations to support the weight of specialized manufacturing equipment. The building is LEED® certified.
