BOKA Powell recently completed this state of the art Administrative Office and Distribution facility for Mary Kay Inc., designing the interiors directly for Mary Kay while delivering the shell building as part of a development team. The result was a functional and efficient building that meets Mary Kay Inc.’s requirements for improved functional efficiency and reduced operating cost, while establishing a strong visual presence within in the surrounding community. At the same time, BOKA Powell delivered a shell building to the developer that will retain long-term value and flexibility within the marketplace. The facility closely integrates automated packing and shipping systems with related management personnel, minimizing walk distances and increasing connectivity between critical operations.
The key to the success of the project was in creating the right adjacencies and work flows between Public/Product Sales Associate areas, Office Areas and Product Distribution functions. This included a unique 3-lane covered drive-through area utilized by the Client’s vast Sales Force for convenient product pick-up. In the warehouse portion of the project, BOKA Powell worked closely with the Client’s packaging, racking and conveying system consultants to insure that the interior design elements and MEP systems coordinated with these critical systems. Working with, as opposed to against, the site irregularities resulted in a functional and efficient building that meets and exceeds Mary Kay Inc.’s program requirements while providing a strong visual presence in the surrounding business community.
