SAN DIEGO, CA – October 04, 2017 – Architectural Concepts, Inc. (ACI) a San Diego firm regarded as one of the Southwest’s top commercial and hospitality-oriented architectural and interior design firms announced completion of the tenant Improvements for the 47,000 SF facility that houses 5,000 SF of newly constructed class 10K (ISO 7) clean rooms, 17,000 SF of manufacturing and warehouse space, and 18,000 SF of offices for research and development.
Quartus Engineering located at 9689 Towne Centre Dr. La Jolla, CA came to ACI after touring Countywide Mechanical’s 24,000 Sf facility that ACI designed. Impressed with the creative design, management selected ACI as their designer for their large expansion to the new La Jolla location.
Quartus is an innovating engineering company specializing in Commercial Aerospace, Defense and Optical Systems. The company’s President Doug Botos expressed that it was very important that the interior design reflect their culture – high level of intellect with a balance of fun activities. Hence the eye-catching and inviting breakroom with candy dispensers, a kegerator and garage doors that open to an outdoor patio with picnic tables which all provide a social gathering point for employees. Other considerations include flexible office space to accommodate teams converging and diverging on a project by project basis. The company also required state-of-the-art clean rooms for highly technical and sensitive component building and testing. The clean room complex is essentially a building of its own and isolated inside the warehouse.
The design coordinates a mix of high tech materials expressed in the interior storefront system, wall and ceiling treatments, lighting and custom colored carpeting. Color zones were created as a way of team building so there is the Red zone and the Blue zone so appropriately the carpeting and paint colors create the zone definition. The Interior design reflects the nature of the science that is applied in the high-level technology engineering.
