Objectives and Challenges


KNG was tasked with completing a full renovation of 15,000 square feet of office space, designed to accommodate 170 employees, with only a five-month window and a $3 million budget.


What We Did


The KNG team worked on an aggressive timetable to complete the renovation within the required time frame. Architectural features of this space include the following:


Extensive custom millwork


This project called for a significant amount of custom millwork, all of which was fabricated in our own 10,000 square-foot workshop and installed by our craftsmen. Much of the millwork was fashioned from birdseye maple, a rare yet elegant type of wood. Specific installations included the following:


  • Office paneling and radiator covers fashioned from birdseye maple
  • A custom-made cross made from birdseye maple
  • Custom cabinetry
  • Custom office furniture, including a large conference table fitted with retractable outlets
  • Custom two-toned black-and-purple office doors with satin finish, installed throughout


Office glass partitions


The project also called for the installation of high-grade movable PK-30 glass partitions throughout the office. These partitions were designed to divide and unify office spaces as needed, requiring structural steel supports when in the closed position.


Custom drop ceilings


We outfitted much of the office space with attractive acoustic drop ceilings to help absorb sound and reduce echo from room to room. We also applied a gold leaf finish to the ceiling in the chapel area, which interlocks with the custom cross.
