IRVINE, Calif. (November 28, 2017) – Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, today announced construction is complete on the new MicroVention Worldwide Innovation Center located at 35 Enterprise in Aliso Viejo, Calif. Ware Malcomb provided architectural design, interior design and lab planning services for the project.

The new facility for MicroVention, a leading medical device manufacturer, consolidates the company’s Orange County operations and positions its business for accelerated growth. MicroVention was previously located in Tustin, Calif.

The new 205,000 square foot, four-story, build-to-suit corporate headquarters includes office, laboratory, and manufacturing space. The company’s state-of-the-art laboratory features 28,000 square foot clean room and 26,000 square feet of research and development and neuroradiology imaging laboratory space, while the manufacturing area boasts a 7,500 square foot machine shop and 27,000 square feet of warehouse and distribution space including two loading docks and an equipment yard with hazardous material storage. A 3,500 square foot employee lunch area and extensive training and conference facilities complete the design.

The contemporary exterior building design features a curved aluminum panel curtain wall and low-e grey glazing with large exterior patio spaces. The site also includes a design-build parking structure, a bioswale, tree well integration, and extensive drought tolerant landscaping. The project meets CalGreen requirements for sustainable building.

“The Ware Malcomb team worked closely with MicroVention, their parent company Terumo, and the construction team to deliver a project that was precisely crafted to the needs of the client,” said Tom Myers, Regional Vice President of Ware Malcomb’s Irvine, Calif.-based headquarters. “This close coordination throughout the design and construction process ensured the project was completed on time and on budget. During the course of the project, we were even able to successfully accommodate the client’s request to expand the manufacturing area by 20%, resulting in an even more complex and efficient project.”

Ware Malcomb’s commercial architecture, interior design, and science & technology studios collaborated on the project design and execution. The General Contractor for the project was DPR.

Ware Malcomb has been ranked #1 among architectural firms in Orange County according to the Orange County Business Journal, and was also featured on the publication’s 2017 lists of the Fastest Growing Private Companies and Best Places to Work. In addition, the firm ranked #21 on Zweig Group’s Hot Firm List, which ranks the top 100 fastest growing firms in the architecture and engineering industry.
