Mims Distributing - Raleigh, NC

layer1-background

Mims Distributing Company, Inc approached HagerSmith Design and Prime Building Company to help them design and build space for their fast growing beer distribution business.  The project included renovating a dilapidated 80,000 SF warehouse that had been unoccupied for 2 years and constructing a new 40,000 SF, high bay warehouse addition and 20,000 SF corporate office space.  The project also incorporated an array of sustainable building practices, one of which was the installation of a thin film, building integrated, photovoltaic system.  Other sustainable practices included concrete drives and truck court to reduce the heat island effect, local building materials, energy efficient mechanical systems, and energy efficient electrical fixtures including motion sensors in the warehouse.  The site design was of great importance to Mims, which included use of existing bolder rocks, retention of storm water, and the integration of a small hops garden.  Key interior design aspects of the project included a 120 person training room, a two story cylindrical entry lobby, and a drive through truck bay for overnight loading of distribution trucks.

  • 40,000 SF Warehouse Addition
  • 20,000 SF Corporate Office Addition

Pullen Park - Raleigh, NC

layer1-background

When Little & Little Landscape Architects PLLC was commissioned by the City of Raleigh to completely redesign the amusement center of historic Pullen Park, they turned to HagerSmith Design to provide architectural services for the project.  A key element was the design of a replacement house for the ca. 1900 Dentzel Carousel.  The new building provides climate control for the National Register-listed carousel, interior space for public viewing and queuing, and improved security, all in a shell that evokes the appearance of turn-of-the-century carousel houses.  One innovative feature of its design is the use of ground-source heat pumps for heating and cooling, with the adjacent lake used as a heat sink.  In addition to the carousel house, HagerSmith designed a new Welcome Center with park offices and public restrooms, a separate restroom building, a concessions building, a replacement train depot for the park railway, as well as a picnic shelter and entry shelter.

Project Scope:

  • Architectural Design of:
  • Carousel House
  • Welcome Center
  • Concessions Building
  • Restrooms
  • Train Station
  • Park Shelters

Siemens - Cary, NC - LEED Gold

layer1-background

The Siemens Medical Solutions project began with a request for a new 6 story, 150,000 SF (combined total with Café and basement 162,500 SF) office and training building with accompanying 600 space parking structure on a site adjacent to two existing SMS buildings which had little connectivity due to a picturesque, heavily wooded ravine which ran between them.  HagerSmith Design initiated a master planning effort with Siemens Medical Solutions to determine how the new facilities could be used to integrate the site.  The outcome is a pedestrian oriented campus with the new office building, parking structure, and 225 seat café building oriented along the ravine which is preserved as open space.  New and existing buildings are interconnected with covered walkways and a new 125’ pedestrian bridge.

Design of the building responds to the nearby precast concrete and glass Training and Development Center while creating a new, high tech image by adding metal panels to the palette.  The building’s east-west orientation optimizes daylighting and minimizes heat gain.  East and west facades have reduced glazed area.  The interior is designed for daylighting and employee views to the exterior.  The program includes a customer briefing center, two call centers and administrative offices.

Project Scope:

  • 6 story Office Building
  • 150,000 SF
  • 600 Space Parking Deck
  • 225 Seat Cafeteria
  • Campus Master Plan
