Project

Simeone Deary Design Group Office Expansion

Client

Simeone Deary Design Group

Architect

Funke Architects

Date of Completion

2015

Helios Construction Services facilitated the full-floor expansion of Simeone Deary’s existing design space into an unoccupied portion of the same floor. Work included abatement of existing conditions, new MEP distribution, new shower room, restroom, and kitchen. In addition, epoxy flooring, high end millwork, open workstations and multiple executive offices were added. The primary challenge was a phased project that opened up select areas of the existing office space into the expansion without impacting business.
