For over 50 years, Ultra Machining Company (UMC) has been a precision manufacturing leader for the medical, aerospace, and defense industries. To elevate its mission as a manufacturing innovator, expand for its growth, and enhance employees’ work environment, the company embarked on an expansion at its Monticello campus.
The UMC Innovation Center showcases state-of-the-art precision manufacturing capabilities, providing space and flexibility for UMC to experiment with automation, technology, and processes as they work with clients. The design creates a connected campus, while preserving the opportunity for UMC to expand and separate the parcels and buildings as needed in the future.
The team was pushed by UMC to design an atypical industrial environment, with highlights including a wrap-around mezzanine, maximized use of glass, high-level finishes, visually connected office and production areas, and manufacturing spaces that double as meeting and presentation areas.
