Fender Musical Instruments Headquarters
The aggressive build-out of Fender Musical Instruments Headquarters was completed in 85 days, made possible by Layton Construction committing two crews running day and night.
This TI combines the elegance and comfort of a new Stratocaster guitar with the professional environment you would expect from a world-class, international business. The space was formerly used as a bank's headquarters, and Layton executed the designer's dream of turning the space into something that most resembles a rock 'n' roll museum.
Project highlights include the "Kaboom Room", a 100 SF block structure, constructed outside the building to test amplifiers to the point of failure. Interior sound rooms have accoustically-designed partitions, ceilings, floor and wall finishes to reduce sound transmission to the other parts of the building. Earlier tenant improvement elements were re-used to make this a sustainable building project.
