As a manufacturing company in need of additional office space and new lab/testing facilities, the Parker Hannifin Corporation saw the potential in the conversion of a large, 150,000 s.f. factory building to a state-of-the-art facility. Working closely with the company, City Architecture was able to adaptively re-use a substantial portion of this factory space into new world headquarters office for the growing Hose Products Division and the Industrial Hose Division. In addition to office space, this project also involved the relocation of highly technical laboratories that the company utilizes for testing its specialized products.
A Parker retail store was incorporated on the building facing the main street, further activating the front facade and providing a showcase model and prototype for future retail stores. City Architecture’s high level of service, understanding of client needs and inspired designs for multiple facilities have led to an ongoing relationship with Parker Hannifin. We have partnered on four expansion plans together and pride ourselves of the strength of this long-standing professional and personal relationship.
