Subcontractor of the Year: Iconic Design Studio
For the first time in RED history, AZRE asked nominators to list notable subcontractors on projects. At the close of the nomination period, we tallied the number of unique projects on which these companies were named. There was one clear winner — Iconic Design Studio. Iconic Design Studio was named to three nominated projects, including one finalist — Sussex Properties for TLC Label, Garmin International and ATC. When Garmin upgraded to its current 60KSF corporate office in Chandler, Iconic Design Studio was brought in to brighten the workplace and bring references of Garmin’s corporate headquarters in Kansas. As interior designer of Sussex Properties for TLC Label, Iconic Design Studio gave a manufacturing plant a clean and inviting front office that is not always seen in industrial buildings. ATC is a commercial aircraft manufacturing facility redeveloped from a post office, but Iconic Design Studio gave the industrial sector another stunning, if not simple, office environment with high ceilings, collaborative workspaces and glass walls.
