This building serves as the international and research/development facility for materials manufactured by Alumax. Located on a three-acre site, the 50,000-square-foot structure has 20,000 sq. ft. of office and lab space and 30,000 sq. ft. of high-bay mechanical testing and machine shop areas. The precast exterior panels were sprayed to give them a textured finish. The fast-track project was completed in 5.5 months and delivered 1.5 months ahead of schedule.
This facility is now occupied by TDA Research, Inc. TDA is a privately held R&D company which develops new materials (polymers, carbons and ceramics), catalytic and sorbent-based chemical processes and military and aerospace components.
