This office expansion of JGB Enterprises in Liverpool, NY was designed by King + King Architects as part of a design-build team with General Contractor CBD Companies and Furniture Vendor Sedgwick Business Interiors. Strong teamwork and communication, along with swift client decisions, resulted in a fast track project where design and construction were completed in less than five months.
This 7,000 square foot adaptive reuse of a former car dealership showroom was crafted to provide JGB Enterprises with a rebranded client experience area for their marketing, sales and customer service departments. The primary open office environment is afforded with high levels of natural light through a new storefront system around the perimeter of the room. The industrial aspect of the JGB brand was incorporated into the ceiling design through exposing the existing structure and installing modern linear luminaires. The highly unique flooring pattern resembles what JGB is most known for – industrial and hydraulic hoses and fittings. Low profile interior glass walls between individual offices and the open office environment reinforces the importance of connectivity and collaboration.
What once was a dull and uninviting storage space is now a bright and motivating environment that sets a new standard for this progressive company as they approach their 50th year as a national leader in their field.
