St. Louis, Missouri
Lafayette Industries is a leader in the contract packaging field. While offering shrink wrap and displays to corporate clients, they also offer hope to the lives of adults with disabilities who wish to join the work force. Oculus Inc. teamed up with Lafayette Industries to design the expansion and renovation of their North campus. The initial design phase included alternate schemes for either a single phase 30,000 SF expansion or two (2) phased 15,000 SF building additions.
The various construction phasing alternates presented to the Productive Life Board, who considered funding the project, will help Lafeyette Industries provide personal fulfillment and positive relations with the rest of the community to the disabled workers. With the addition of 32,000 SF, there will be enough space for over 120 new employees. After completion of the addition(s) and renovation of the existing building, a comprehensive 56,000 SF will allow for over 250 employees.
