Moncks Corner, South Carolina

Project Details

Client: GMN Management, LLC

Building Area: 116,000 SF

Delivery Method: Design/Bid/Build

Construction Cost: $17.3 Million

Technical Considerations: Implement Feng Shui design principles into the adjoined office and workshop


MCA designed an operations facility comprised of 100,000 SF of manufacturing, warehouse and demonstration space and 16,000 SF of office space housing a training center, engineering offices and a sales team. The manufacturing component is comprised of a 40 foot clear height volume with three overhead cranes, including one 50-ton crane, to accommodate large tonnage machine assembly and testing. The 3-story office component highlights an open office concept with an emphasis on access to natural light, a connection to the outdoors and collaboration. Spaces include outdoor patios on the first and third floor, varying size conference rooms, informal collaboration space, and open stair towers with full height glazing. Feng Shui design principles were paramount to the design, including but not limited to building orientation, vegetation placement, height of office vs. workshop, extensive exterior windows to channel light and energy, circulation configuration and material selection.
