Hunt & Caraway Architects worked closely with Norwood Equipment and The O’Malley Group to evaluate the existing site and the possibilities of expanding manufacturing operations within the area. The project utilized an existing manufacturing facility for the office administration and expanded the manufacturing bays to meet the Owner’s requirements. The project provided for a full administration and sales staff with nine manufacturing bays and associated work areas, traveling bridge crane, 2 story parts, racking system, welding, iron works, compressed air distribution system, exterior fabrication awning for production and natural gas system.
Hunt & Caraway provided a life cycle cost analysis for the facility with an emphasis on energy efficient lighting systems within the apparatus bays. We were able to replace the existing bay lighting with LED and reduce the lighting count within the space to save on installation costs. We were also able to reduce types of floor finishes, with a focus on the longevity of polished concrete for long term maintenance and replacement costs.
Foothills Baptist Church in Ahwatukee, commissioned Hunt & Caraway to update their Master Site Plan and develop concept design for the continued development of their 5.6 acre campus. The site design optimizes parking, fully landscaped and includes a pre-school playground. The site “build-out” included Worship Center, Multipurpose Room, Preschool, Church Office, and a Children’s Ministry Building.
This plan included a 500 seat Worship Center with a platform to accommodate a 100 voice choir and 23 piece orchestra, and features 19 foot rear screen projection, lighting control booth with follow spots and a ground floor sound control area.
Immediately adjacent is a music suite for practice, instrument and music storage. This 29,500 s.f. building also includes a multipurpose room with seating at tables for 400, a pre-school with 10 classrooms for 150 students.
Two story recreation center inclusive of athletic amenities, classrooms, offices, café and game room. Program components included full size basketball court, handball courts, weight & circuit training rooms, aerobics room, jog track, locker rooms with dry saunas and roller rink. This facility has become
an active community center for public use by surrounding neighborhoods. Continual annual events and daily use speak highly of the functionalism and quality of the design.
