Challenge Design-Build Project Delivery Addressed
As a growing company in a fast-moving marketplace, Nutrabolt needed a facility with flexibility and options; the design-build team delivered on this need. The project required a creative, collaborative construction approach to deliver a facility with a unique design and challenging site conditions. The site was situated on clay-type soils, which can experience significant movement (as much as eight inches) during construction. The potential for movement posed a large challenge for numerous aspects of the project including the underground utilities. During preconstruction, Beck heavily researched effective, affordable options and then utilized two unique construction approaches to combat this challenge.
The plans for Nutrabolt’s new corporate headquarters included two buildings: a 30,000-square-foot office building and a 20,000-square-foot employee fitness facility. The integrated design-build team worked collaboratively to create the facility that would reflect Nutrabolt’s culture. The Nutrabolt new headquarters creates a stimulating and playful work environment embodying the company’s “work hard, play hard” culture. Meeting rooms and private offices are grouped into a series of discrete “boxes,” each clad in one of five materials: stone, wood, metal, stucco or board-formed concrete. The informal plan arrangement of boxes around a central courtyard yields a network of connected open office areas and lounge spaces that promote collaboration and communication between departments. The full-height glass walls extending between boxes flood the interior with natural light and strengthen the connection to the outdoor spaces. Generous lounge areas, cafe, relaxation rooms and fitness center, including a full basketball court and spa, allow Nutrabolt employees to play as hard as they work.
