Renovation of Kohler foundry’s 3,600-square-foot basement space into a Smart Home Experience Lab. The space includes three 20x27-foot rooms specifically designed to allow for building, testing and enhancement of smart home technology revolving around the Kohler Konnect app and a collection of new and updated products, the company’s IoT (Internet of Things) smart home network powered by Microsoft Azure.
Special project specifications required Hamann remove existing concrete floor and excavate down 12” to create a mechanical chase to house wiring, plumbing and ductwork. This allows for easy modification of mechanical systems as needed for future lab space requirements.
