KSD Project Featured in Retrofit Magazine
Updated: Mar 15, 2020
Retrofit Magazine exhibits industry professionals and innovative work in the retrofit marketplace, exclusively focusing on projects that create opportunities out of empty or existing spaces in the hopes of improving real estate value or finding savings while renovating to suit new programmatic needs.
In the January-February 2020 issue of their magazine, Retrofit features our MSN Pharmaceuticals renovation as an online exclusive.
This article highlights the project's multifaceted design and renovation process, showcasing the materials and team involved to complete the task for our client. In addition to fitting the existing shell out to house corporate offices, research laboratories and a pharmaceutical manufacturing plant, the entire existing 35-foot facade was removed, redesigned and adapted to the new use.
Inside the building, existing CMU walls were partially removed to adapt the building to a new pattern of circulation; this new flow was designed around employees who now operate the research & development, QA, and analytical laboratories, as well as the new corporate offices on the second level, and engineers within the new pilot plant.
