Superflex
Brooklyn, NY 2008

The Superflex company makes flexible PVC hoses of a variety of shapes and functions. They are in the planning stage to build a new plant on the Harbor front in Brooklyn’s Bush Terminal area. They are currently in Brooklyn and want to double their space to 120,000.

As designed, the new factory will not only provide more space, it will rationalize the use of space for more efficient operations. The site is next to a harbor front park being created by the city Parks Department. The steel panels and glass of the enclosure, the slight racks of the roof and the landscaping are designed to make the building a fitting neighbor to both the old Bush terminal buildings and the new park.

The plant is being designed to achieve a LEEDS rating of 26.
