Ordinarily, a flood is destructive rather than creative. When a hot water tank failed on the second floor of Vocon’s headquarters the opportunity to give their space a refresh became necessary. Nearly all of the 22,000 square feet building was touched in the refresh. Marous Brothers Construction served as negotiated general contractor and the all-in budget for the project was around $1.8 million. Challenges included a predominately after-hours construction schedule, containing construction debris to protect Vocon’s employees from being impacted and performing surgical demolition in rooms that remained in active use. Clients and visitors now enter a stunning lobby. A friendly concierge welcomes you into Vocon’s home – quite literally. Vocon’s space is very client-focused. The many huddle & collaboration rooms all have Casper film, which cloaks the images displayed on computer and television screens from outside viewers. Marous Brothers Construction had to work closely with Vocon to ensure the fixture was appropriately supported and powered since no manufacturer’s spec sheet exists.
We started to work together when Chip and Scott were out in the field hanging doors. They’ve come a long way, because they’ve done the work themselves. They’re hands-on people, giving them the control that makes them good at what they do. If you need a builder to rely on, they’re the one.
