Immersion  is a Silicon Valley-based tech company that focuses on bringing electronic touch-screen actions to life through the use of haptics technology. SC Builders, in partnership with Fennie + Mehl Architects principal Doug Mehl and senior designer Jenna Ruth, worked to relocate and rebuild the company's office headquarters in San Jose. The team transformed the space into a flexible office environment for employees as well as a product showcase for attracting prospective talent and clientele.
Project work included complete interior demolition and build-out, as well as offices and lab infrastructure. Architectural features include frameless glass walls and doors, floating-cloud ceilings, polished concrete, kitchen / all-hands area with contemporary banquet seating and stone top islands, R&D lab, and custom millwork niche walls to display company product and intellectual property.

"The key to success on this project was the invaluable pre-construction
effort between SC Builders and our team to design a space that captured Immersion's position as a leader in the haptic technology industry at an incredible $71/sf! Having worked together on multiple projects, we had an instant level of trust with the SC Builders team to allow us to make
quick, informative, and creative design decisions that met our
client's ambitious budget."
