Project summary provided by submitting company.
The Paparazzi Accessories project includes two phases: warehouse and office. The first phase incorporated integrally colored tilt-up concrete to increase the buildings’ long-term durability. The warehouse also included 63,000 SF of MagicSlab concrete. MagicSlab concrete floor has no joints, no cracks, no visible saw-cuts, and no caulking. The adjoining office was constructed during the second construction phase and included a showroom, a uniquely rounded staircase, lobby, conference rooms, break room, etc. Stunning, high-end features throughout the office space—both inside and outside—were the focus of the entire building’s design. Paparazzi’s office design aimed to assure patrons the company takes their jewelry business seriously. The purpose of building a new warehouse and office was to help company expansion—their current space could no longer contain their rapid growth. Having the warehouse space up and running was the most important aspect of the project. To ensure a speedy delivery, Hughes phased the project into two parts—warehouse and office—rather than completing them concurrently. Working solely on the warehouse during the first phase meant it could be occupied during the second phase of construction. Hughes also offered tilt-up concrete construction was a warehouse option, also in an effort to expedite the first phase, since tilt-up panels can equal a standing structure in a matter of days. Containing the schedule helped the client increase their overall profits—the functioning warehouse meant greater sales and production.
