ViaSat – Building Six

ViaSat, a leader in innovative satellite and wireless communication products for commercial and military markets, expanded to a seven building campus. FPBA were hired to relocate the Operations Group into a new facility that enhances their Operations’ efficiency, teamwork and cooperation.  An newly upgraded entrance and lobby is the portal to and from the existing campus where manufacturing flows were utilized to organize an efficient, logical layout in as large an open manufacturing area as possible.

FPBA developed 3D views and animations to enable the design team and users to create, understand and refine the all important physical aspects of the facility.  An overhead modular grid system organizes the power, grounding, compressed air, phone and data to supply a multitude of possible manufacturing configurations.  A meandering circulation path takes visitor and employees through an exciting open office area to conference rooms and other common areas while maintaining secure zones for ViaSat’s intellectual property.
