Inmar's New Headquarters

New Headquarters for Inmar.jpg
Project Overview: 
Inmar’s New Headquarters is a LEED Platinum Certified 232,000 square foot adaptive reuse of two historic manufacturing buildings once owned by RJ Reyolds Tobacco Company east of downtown Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The project included retro-fitting the open warehouse space with two infill floor plates, modifying the existing structure to accommodate new atriums and skylights, repurposing a mechanical dunnage structure into a featured multi-level glazed conference tower, and designing the attachment for an architecturally significant wall façade on the north end which featured a glass curtain wall surrounding suspended masonry veneer.
McLaren's Role: 
Structural engineering services included field investigation and analysis of the existing channelcrete roof plank and truss system. McLaren assessed their condition and created remedial repair drawings, as well as the design of signature architectural features and exposed structural elements throughout the building. McLaren was called upon to devise an innovative solution, using traditional construction materials to the floor-to-floor height dilemma, presented by the preservation of the historic second floor warehouse slab. Geotechnical engineering services included in-situ subsurface investigation within the shell of the existing warehouse structure; which eliminated the need for mitigation of the existing foundations while adding gravity loads from two new floors at each column.
