ooper Lighting presented a design challenge to MOA: transform a high-bay warehouse building into a state-of-the-art divisional corporate headquarters building with product showrooms, collaboration spaces, and flexible office solutions, along with full manufacturing facilities, all on a very tight occupancy schedule. The result was a LEED certified facility with carefully integrated spaces that not only improve occupant efficiency but also enhance on-site marketing opportunities in providing an effective environment to highlight over 100 different LED lighting fixture types manufactured by Cooper. Interior spaces feature day-lit two-story volumes to enhance the collaboration between design and marketing departments on different floors. Phased bid packages allowed for early procurement of long-lead items and an on-time commencement of construction activities.
