Chiayi Plant, New Deantronics
New Deantronics is a medical/surgical device developer and manufacturer founded in San Francisco, California in 1985 with engineering and manufacturing operations in Taiwan. Offering solutions for a wide range of medical disciplines, including general surgery, neurosurgery, cardiology, orthopedics, and aesthetics, New Deantronic’s spectrum of services includes design, development, manufacturing, packaging, sterilization, regulatory and other support services. This project is launched for sustainable development of corporate and global marketing strategies, and deliver international standard medical sterilization services. The master plan was completed in 2016 and chose the site in Machouhou Industrial Park. The design follows the domestic code, international sterilization standards, and is expected to connect with the global medical industry.
In consideration of the office building’s orientation with sunlight exposure, the plan mostly uses folds to avoid western sunlight on the façade and thus creates a rhythmic vocabulary. The staff activity space is the center of the cluster, which uses the core value of the client, “caring,” to express the culture of “human-oriented” and “a big family”. The folds on the building mass imply the “pioneering” image in the R&D field. It also helps to introduce natural light and ventilation to accomplish the target of energy-saving and form a comfortable space, both in and out.
From design concept to substantial completion, this project is built in 1.5 years only. The client expects to bring a whole new style into this industrial park, via its corporate philosophy and the benefits brought to the staff.
