The upgrade netted three stories of offices, conference and training rooms, plus more spacious lobby and other common areas. The Omnia Group, Hatboro, Pa. architect, designed interiors featuring a two-story vestibule and reception area that includes stone, concrete and wood paneling. Light- ing, hardware, murals, furniture, bathrooms and offices were each detailed to be part of an updated, brand forward, efficient, yet comfortable working environment. Gen- eral contractor H.C. Pody Co., Bensalem, Pa., oversaw demolition and site work that continued after completion of the build- ing renovation. Scheduling allowed Silvi to expand, as well as update, building exterior areas, including the addition of more park- ing and a new entrance. The producer also upgraded landscaping with new plantings, grassy knolls, irrigation system, and site lighting. "There were many challenges to over- come during construction, including shuffling of the corporate staff as well as continuing our everyday manufacturing and vehicle repair operations at the site," says President Laurence J.
