[+] WSU TECHTOWN TECH ONE
Renovation of the existing building at 440 Burroughs, marked Detroit’s first TechTown installation - TechOne. The existing structure is a cast-in-place five-story light industrial building. Previously utilized by General Motors as a design and testing facility, the building’s overall area is comprised of approximately 142,000sf, with each floor plate containing roughly 28,400sf. The project provides incubator labs and support spaces for high-tech start-up companies in the medical and biotechnology sciences.
The first phase of work involved the renovation of the building's core and shell. Subsequent architectural services and interior design for tenant build-out services included: tenant/owner communication coordination, space planning, tenant specification standards, coordination of construction work, scheduling, permitting, budgeting, and subconsultant quality coordination for clients such as Henry Ford Health Systems, Michigan Neonatal Biobank, Asterand and Shrader Laboratories.
