Corvette America Headquarters

Corvette America, an international distributor of Corvette parts, contracted Erdman Anthony to provide structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering services for their new world headquarters. Erdman Anthony provided design services as part of an adaptive reuse of a 202,000 sq ft outdated manufacturing plant which was used for warehouse space.

The renovated facility includes retail space for Corvette parts and souvenirs, an area for custom parts fabrication, a museum, a consignment Corvette display area, offices, conference rooms, and a warehouse for receiving and shipping inventory. The goal of the design was to give Corvette America a facility that is both flexible in its usage and expandable in order to complete the company's vision of an ultimate client/tourist destination.

During the first phase of the build-out, Erdman Anthony provided structural remediation of fatigued and stressed areas, interior and exterior lighting, HVAC, telecommunications and structured cable design, electrical power distribution, building automation controls, and fire protection for the facility.

Throughout the design, Erdman Anthony incorporated sustainable design features. These features included comfort control systems for occupants, optimized HVAC systems for energy efficiency, energy-efficient lighting, and energy recovery on all HVAC systems. Plumbing fixtures are low consumption, and the domestic hot water systems are high-efficiency instantaneous to conserve energy.
