Our office handled the architectural layout and fit-up of the Holden Leonard Mill for Mace Security International to house Federal Laboratories. The design of spaces included consideration of material storage, flow, and handling requirements for highly explosive materials mixed in pyrotechnic devices used by law enforcement and the military.
The emphasis on this project was the control and containment of materials, separation of areas by degree of hazards, security, and contamination's potential. We also designed projectile quality control testing areas used to monitor device detonation times and explosion characteristics. This project was reviewed by the local and state code agencies, as well as the Federal Agency of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms due to the explosive materials.
