Headquarters in Ferndale

Axiom collaborated with IMCO General Construction on this completely new design and build of IMCO’s LEED Certified corporate offices and two heavy equipment maintenance drive-thru shops.   Axiom’s work on this project included architectural design from conceptual through design development, as well as interior design.  Axiom was also the general contractor for the project, using IMCO for any of their particular specialties.  IMCO specializes in industrial and heavy civil construction, and their headquarters relocated with the idea of a more sophisticated office and a lot more space.  The design intent was to show case the civil materials used in their projects like concrete, steel, and industrial details, and expose as much of the structure as possible while adhering to the standards of LEED certification.  The main office hub is a cast in-place concrete tilt up with exposed steel structure.  The floor plan has a variety of spaces for open collaborative work and bidding, as well as private offices and break rooms.  Reclaimed barn wood flooring, locally sourced materials, and steel and glass partition walls give the space warmth while celebrating a modern industrial vibe. The project also includes a rain catching cistern system, a waste oil reclamation system, and LEED certified mechanical systems.
