Location: Suzhou, China

Project Description: The Solectron Corporation’s new 300,000 sq. ft. Manufacturing Facility in Suzhou, China includes two large manufacturing assembly floors, administration offices, a bicycle parking garage, employee looker rooms, training classrooms, and core support facilities.

The client design directive for the project was a striking corporate image for their “flagship” facility in Asia. The facility was completed in April of 1998, with a construction cost of $28 million. With the use of fast track construction, the scheduling of this project required close coordination with all local team members with readily available construction methods and materials.
