Allied Video relocated into an existing warehouse space off Front Street. Work included a major renovation to create unique spaces for Allied Video. Ramps connecting varying heights of floor levels, open ceilings and specialty lighting form character for this unique improvement. Vivid wall colors provide backgrounds for Allied Video’s extensive collection of movie memorabilia.
MaPs Credit Union Administration Building
The MaPs Credit Union Administration building project involved the re-development of a site on the north side of downtown Salem previously inhabited by the old PGE service building and yard as well as a pair of low-rise apartment buildings that had become quite dilapidated. Working with SR Development and LCG Pence, MaPs Credit Union built a new 4-story 44,000 s.f. office building and constrained site conditions, the new building was constructed of tilt-up concrete and steel framing. The tilt-up concrete panel system involved inlaid brick and slate tile feature bands as well as significant amounts of glazing in order to provide a bright and flexible working environment for administrative staff. The top two floors involved tenant improvements for MaPs Credit Union Administration while the lower two floors, developed for future expansion accommodated office space for a state agency and private sector partner. Studio 3 has since provided additional tenant improvement services for MaPs CU to expand to some of the lower floor space.
- Size: 44,000 s.f.
- Cost: $4,800,000
Originally designed as an office for an eye doctor in the early seventies, the building was completely remodeled to provide space for a modern law office. The building exterior was stripped of its deteriorating siding, new windows were cut into an essentially windowless building to provide ample day lighting and natural ventilation using energy efficient glazing. The rest of the wall surface received additional continuous insulation to significantly improve R-value and the building received new low maintenance siding. Since the roof still had approximately ten years of life, thermal upgrades to the roof were postponed until the time of roof replacement.
The interior was repartitioned to provide new offices for attorneys and support staff as well as conference rooms and a large conference room/seminar room for A/V presentations. Completed in summer of 2012.
