Rochling Medical

Office Renovations and Study

Industry: Corporate/Industrial

Services Provided: Architecture, MEP Engineering

Pathfinder has provided full-service design for multiple projects at Rochling Medical involving product design and mold making, accelerated tooling, strong up-front engineering for medical device manufacturing and renovation of office and engineering areas. Approximately 6,200 sq. ft. of office space, lobby, reception area, conference room and support areas were renovated. Phase 2 of the project will renovate the Engineering Office.

Architectural services included a building code analysis followed by demolition design. Development of the proposed floor plan of office space and lobby and preparation of the design documents included conceptual furniture/equipment layouts.

Mechanical engineering design provided new AHUs, ductwork and layout. Also provided were new locations for thermostats, diffusers and return air grilles coordinated within the ceiling system and adjacent areas. The exhaust/ventilation system with energy recovery was provided for toilet rooms. Plumbing design provided sanitary, cold water, hot water, vents for new ADA toilet rooms, relocation of the sink and piping in the break area. The existing sprinkler system and pendant head locations were revised in the new office space.  Electrical engineering design included preparation of power, lighting, exit signs, emergency lighting and fire alarm communication plans.


Pathfinder is completing a study to include a building addition on the south side of the existing building as well as a new parking lot on the north side of the building. The study will be based on the site requirements regarding the property line setbacks allotted by the City of Rochester and maximizing both the added building and parking. Pathfinder will develop a Rough Order Magnitude estimate showing the options and cost of the building and parking lot additions.
