WARE MALCOMB ANNOUNCES CONSTRUCTION IS COMPLETE ON WESTERN WINDOW SYSTEMS NEW MANUFACTURING AND OFFICE HEADQUARTERS IN PHOENIX
PHOENIX (December 13, 2017) – Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, today announced construction is complete on the new Western Window Systems office and manufacturing headquarters located at 2200 E. Riverview Drive in Phoenix. Ware Malcomb provided interior architecture and design services for the project.
The 170,000 square foot building is more than double the size of the company’s previous South Phoenix location, currently housing over 300 employees including both manufacturing and office staff. The new facility is part of Western Window Systems’ increased investment in engineering and manufacturing capabilities to accommodate the company’s future growth in generating innovative solutions for indoor-outdoor living.
“It was exciting to design a new office and manufacturing facility that reflected the Western Window Systems brand, while maximizing its productivity and creativity,” said Kevin Evernham, Principal of Ware Malcomb’s Phoenix office. “It’s a space where innovation and collaboration are fostered for employees and customers alike.”
The office areas are designed to reflect the company culture and double as a showroom where customers can experience the company’s vast array of luxury door systems and windows in real-life settings. Polished concrete floors, a high-ceilinged lobby, and a private patio provide the backdrop for themed meeting rooms, including one housing a Lego sculpture of over 30,000 blocks; a Greetings from Western postcard-themed mural by Phoenix artist Kory Miller; over a dozen games including pinball and shuffleboard; British phone booths; and even a corkscrew slide.
To maximize productivity, an expanded manufacturing area features state of the art CNCs and saws, additional loading docks, and an updated cooling system. Towering over the shop’s massive break room, which includes personal lockers, a TV, and arcade games, is a 925-square-foot mural by Phoenix artist Tato Caraveo.
The General Contractor for the project was Layton Construction.
