Where Industrial Meets the Workplace: Mach & SITES Medical

February 3, 2022

When you hear about industrial spaces, it’s easy to imagine large warehouse-like structures with unfinished looking interiors, fluorescent lights, and cement floors. There are many industrial spaces that are designed with aesthetics in mind along with being functional and economical. Some of these spaces include both office and industrial aspects in one structure, and it takes considerate and careful design to help these spaces flow with one another. One example of this is Mach Medical and SITES Medical, two sister companies which manufacture orthopedic medical equipment. The new building brought both companies together under one roof, creating a connection between design and manufacturing professionals through the physical space.

The office portion of the space is filled with wood ceilings and details that bring warmth and definition, along with bright fabrics and wall coverings to lighten up the spaces and give workers a recess from the industrial environment.

The manufacturing portion of the space has clean, simple design elements that give the area a modern aesthetic while providing all of the necessary materials for a functional manufacturing environment. The clean, white finishes differ this space from the traditional industrial space.

A break area was designed with a mixture of both the warm wood and colorful material and clean/modern elements, connecting the office portion with the manufacturing portion through a garage door with see-through panels. The workspace flows seamlessly into the manufacturing area.

There are many different types of industrial spaces. A space with both office and manufacturing areas is elevated through design that both connects and differentiates each part of the building. For more information on industrial projects, contact our Industrial Market Leader, Matt Elliott.
