Polyrack, a German company specializing in the design and manufacturing of custom computer housings, commissioned the design build team of Vision 3 Architects and New England Construction to build their North American headquarters located in Cumberland, RI. It is the first U.S. facility for Polyrack.

The one-story building consists of administrative offices, assembly, fabrication, and storage areas. A contemporary design creates an image consistent with the high tech products which Polyrack produces. The exterior of the building incorporates metal panel systems in Polyrack corporate colors, concrete masonry units, and aluminum glazing systems. The interiors are designed with a modern and open feeling, especially in the entry lobby and reception areas.


“Vision 3 visited our plant in Germany, saw our operations, our corporate identity, and was really able to capture our brand. They designed a building we could identify with. Their approach, and use of computer renderings, was excellent. It helped us visualize options and make decisions. Unlike our experience building in Europe, having Vision 3 and the contractor at the table as a team from the start was a successful experience. Previously, there were always changes during construction. With this project, the cost we planned on was achieved. Vision 3 was very responsive throughout the process. I really enjoyed working together with them.”
