BCI Corporate Headquarters, New Construction

As part of the planned company expansion, BCI acquired property to facilitate the construction of its new corporate headquarters in New Castle, DE. With a 10,000 square foot footprint and a mezzanine of some 2,200 square feet, the space was planned for immediate company needs as well as future growth. Over 4,200 square feet of office space was utilized in the design with the remaining area used for shop space, warehouse, tool storage, pre-fabrication, and assembly areas.

To blend in with the surrounding existing buildings and structures, BCI constructed the exterior with load bearing CMU and split-face block in multiple colors together with aluminum storefront entries and windows. Landscaping featured flowering pear trees to keep with the design of the adjacent areas which have many such trees and is a site to behold in the spring when the trees bloom.

The interior has many unique features including large sliding barn doors at the offices and conference rooms, two story monumental stair case with stainless steel rails and perforated stainless panels, custom maple treads, polished concrete floors, and luminous resin panels among many such high end architectural finishes. With the design to mimic the industrial look, bar joists, decking, and round spiral duct were left exposed and painted with contrasting colors. Pendant and feature lighting were used throughout.

For the use of employees, a fully equipped gymnasium was built at the mezzanine level and includes a multitude of free weights, elliptical machine, tread mill, and other fitness equipment. The gymnasium also includes two ceiling hung televisions and CD player. In conjunction with the gymnasium, both men's and women's restrooms on the mezzanine level were fitted out with individual lockers and a shower for employee convenience. At the first floor level a kitchenette was provided complete with major appliances and seating for eight employees.

Overall design, layout, and functionality of the building provides a great atmosphere for both BCI employees and guests. It serves as a central hub to conduct business, plan and execute company operations, and foster camaraderie among personnel.
