GSD Contracting recently completed a warehouse renovation and expansion project for United National Consumer Suppliers (UNCS) located in Wilton Manors, FL.
UNCS is a wholesale distributor that connects suppliers to a global network of manufacturers, retailers, warehouses, and shipping service providers. As their list of well-respected retail brands has grown over the last 15 years, so has their business and need for additional office/work space in South Florida.
As part of this new tenant improvement project, our team built out the existing space to a 7,568 sf open concept, incorporating glass walls, hard and soft floor finishes, cabinetry, displays and modern metallic and wood finishes throughout.
Warehouse Renovation Builds Amplifies Work Life
An inspiring workspace builds morale and can help employees produce their best work. The building space, floor print and ceiling height allowed UNCS to create a NYC style loft while staying where the company started in Fort Lauderdale. Every inch of the space was designed to foster innovation. The open floor plan design allows for numerous places for pop up meetings. Televisions can be synched with ones computer or iPad. Additionally, all the TVs are surrounded by floor to ceiling White Board wall paint that will allow for more productive meetings and collaboration.
There’s a tree house, a modern café, and bleacher seating in the main showroom. A bar was built into a shipping container that greets guests upon their arrival. The boardroom features a 14-foot shipping crate conference table with signed guitars covering the walls. There are plenty of cool kitschy things throughout the office like a set of 250 year-old temple doors, a signed picture of Smokey and the Bandit and Star Wars memorabilia.
GSD built UNCS’ first space located at the Galleria Mall in Fort Lauderdale when the company was first starting out. The offer of repeat business supports our mission of building trust with clients. As a result of our previous commercial renovation work for UNCS, this leading global wholesale distributor that represents iconic brands like Kitchen Aid, Hershey’s, Crayola and Ray Ban again placed its trust in GSD Contracting to help it expand its global operations in South Florida.
Brett Rose, UNCS CEO shared his thoughts about the renovated warehouse and office project and the experience working with GSD again.
“I wanted to reiterate my appreciation for your team’s hard work and unwavering commitment to finishing our new home here at UNCS. Each and every member of the team, from Steve, Nelson, Chris and all the subs, did an amazing job. We are very proud of the job your team did. I would highly recommend your company to anyone that asks and my doors remain open to your team if you need to show a potential client your amazing work.”
