We worked with the architect and program manager to construct a 187,000 sf headquarters for Pride Industries, one of the largest employers of people with disabilities in the world. The facility included office, manufacturing, equipment maintenance and electronics assembly space on a 17-acre site, allowing them to consolidate their scattered facilities under a single roof. Each project phase had to be coordinated with the lease expirations of former community facilities and the construction itself, which was complicated by the sensitive wetlands area which laid directly adjacent to the project site.
The project was complex and Deacon Corp. handled the myriad of details superbly. With the help of the Deacon team, Pride created a facility that is unique in America, where people with disabilities can come to work in an awesome environment.
