Guardian Drug Co. Building Expansion

Project summary provided by submitting company.

Business expansion from over-the-counter to prescription drug manufacturing required a major shift in facility design. As a pharmaceutical establishment on the rise, Guardian Drug Co. had to accommodate stringent FDA regulations, quality control & assurance, and support spaces for a growing staff. Kamlesh Shah Design (KSD) Inc. was enlisted for the design of a tilt-up shell structure and the interior fit-out for new corporate offices, laboratories, and complete interior design. Using repetitive lines, contrasting curves and dynamic pops of color, KSD brought professional enthusiasm to the Guardian team’s updated facility. With floor-to-ceiling glazing and a design having inherent movement, the corporate offices provided a warm productive environment, while clean lines and stark neutrals in the labs provided a clean finish.
