Racanelli Construction Company, Inc. recently completed an extensive, multi-phase project on behalf of CBC (America) Corp. (Commack, NY).
Racanelli provid ed its design/build services in the construction of a one-story, 18,000- square foot addition to the south side of CBC (America)’s existing building located at 55 Mall Drive in Commack. The addition consists of a structural steel frame with an interior concrete slab. The exterior wall is comprised of a masonry enclosure with a high tech aluminum and glass curtain wall system. This glass and curtain wall system also was added to the part of the existing structure facing Mall Drive.
The interior of the new extension called for the addition of 7,200 square feet of new offices and 14,000 square feet of new warehouse space which is connected to CBC (America)’s existing warehouse. The office area was a three phase construction operation, which areas were vacated, completed and then reoccupied thereby enabling CBC (America) staff to maintain their productivity levels without being hindered by construction activities.
Featured in the new interior office space is an open corridor. The corridors starts at the new addition, runs through the open area office partitions and connects into the ceiling and floor “Ellipse” which highlights the building’s renovated reception and conference room area. The Ellipse consists of a drywall drop ceiling soffit with cove lighting and a reflective “Toli” multicolored sheet vinyl floor which mimics the ceiling layout. CBC (America) is a distributor of “Toli” goods for the nation’s northeast region. The area is enclosed in white milk-colored glass with aluminum-colored millwork which is also installed in a radial pattern. This area leads to the east side reception area, waiting rooms, board room and conference rooms.
The north area of the CBC (America) building was completed by installing a “Toli” showroom with an exposed and sealed concrete floor for the company to display its extensive line of sheet vinyl flooring.
As part of its project services, Racanelli also provided site work.
