Warehouse Offices
AHM National Parts Distribution Center

Troy, Ohio 


Several departments of the Distribution Center had office functions located in the open warehouse space. The office functions, which included telephone conversations and computer-based tasks, occured within the warehouse spaces normally filled with the sounds of tow motors, mechanical equipment and so on. Acoustical separation from the warehouse was needed. Also, there were no environmental controls afforded the office workers and the computer equipment.  There are also several existing office spaces located within the warehouse space that needed to be expanded to allow for growth in personnel.

The offices were constructed of metal studs, gypsum board, with suspended acoustical ceiling systems, carpet and new environmental systems (heating and cooling).  Pre-engineered steel mezzanines were provided to house HVAC and electrical equipment.
