Client: Hanna Instruments
Location: 270 George Washington Highway, Smithfield RI 02917
Year Completed: 2012
Project Manager: Ernie Nadeau
Hanna Instruments found itself needing to expand from its existing USA headquarters in Woonsocket, RI. When Nadeau got involved, this was an existing, partially completed structure in need of an exterior makeover and a 35,000 sq ft. interior renovation. Minor upgrades were made to 17,500 sq. ft of warehouse space and another interior space of equal size was completely renovated to create state of the art work space for sales offices, administration, testing, inspection, and training spaces. Together with Vision 3 architects, the aggressive budget and strict time constraints were met by our team.
