Welch Allyn

Building Consolidation
 

Welch Allyn, Inc. is a family-owned global developer and manufacturer of frontline medical diagnostic equipment. QPK Design was charged with combining their two separate locations, both in the Skaneateles area, into a single larger facility and planning for future growth. The design had to facilitate recruiting and retention of top talent to sustain the company’s global market positioning. As a company with a strong connection to their employees and the environment, the project was to incorporate sustainable design features, specifically relating to the site and the interior environment.

 

The building project itself consists of a renovation of 120,000 sf of the existing 221,000 sf building, as well as 121,000 sf in two additions, with a total project area of 241,000 sf. A programmatic re-organization was undertaken to optimize both the use of space and the functionality of their operations, based on employee surveys and workflow analysis.

 

Thanks to the dedication of the client and the knowledge and diligence of the design and construction teams, Welch Allyn Additions and Alterations was awarded LEED Gold Certification in November of 2011, with a total of 43 points achieved.
