An accredited building products testing laboratory, Architectural Testing, relocated to an expanded location in West Palm Beach, Florida, designed to replace the company's Riviera Beach facility. This larger test facility, at 2658 Electronics Way, offers 20,000 square feet of indoor space with 24 feet of ceiling clearance, a 128' by 40' outdoor mock-up wall, and state of the art equipment, along with improved office space and conference areas.
"We believe our new facility will further enhance the customer experience when working with us in South Florida," said Jeff McGovern, Director – Regional Operations for ATI. "Our close proximity to the Miami-Dade County Building Department allows ATI staff to meet face to face with Building Code Officials, thus improving the communication process during product approvals and maintaining the hands-on approach and guidance our clients have come to expect."
With two acres of space remaining on site, company officials said they are studying future growth opportunities for ATI's West Palm Beach facility. Its Sunshine State facility could someday offer; wind-driven rain testing, uplift testing for structural metal roof systems, Safety Glazing Certification Council testing, Insulating Glass Certification Council testing, and thermal testing.
ATI's West Palm Beach location is one of 14 strategically placed full-service laboratories across the United States and Canada. It currently offers the following test disciplines: air, water, structural laboratory and field testing, impact and cycling testing, full-scale performance mock-up testing, as well as non-structural and structural roof uplift testing.
