Quantum Marine Engineering and Quantum Stabilizers, Inc. have announced that construction of their new international headquarters has commenced.

Featuring an environmentally conscientious design, the project will see the construction of a three-story, 30,000 sq/ft (2,800sq/m) LEED 1 certified building and will facilitate the entire company under one roof, with over 80 parking spaces strategically located within the 2.5 acre preserve area.

Located directly opposite Quantum’s existing offices and manufacturing facility in Fort Lauderdale, the new building has also been specifically designed to allow for future expansion for administrative, R&D, design and manufacturing.

“On behalf of our entire Quantum family, we are looking forward to being able to call this our new home. The building design will allow us to streamline our productions and enhance inter-departmental communication,” says John Allen, president of Quantum.

The building design utilizes a scored EIFS system that relates to the adjoining Port 95 neighbouring buildings with accents of more sophisticated materials, i.e. glass curtain wall and aluminium composite architectural panel system, to project the proper image for this high technology marine company.

“We have seen the superyacht industry grow considerably over the past ten years, not only in sheer numbers but the size and sophistication of the vessels along with the products they use. To maintain our continued expansion we have focused our efforts on both product development and client services. All of which is made possible by the careful selection of talented employees. If a company wants to stay at the top of its industry it has to realize the expectations of its customers,” Allen concludes.

Formed in 1985, Quantum is the manufacturer of Zero Speed stabilizers for superyachts featuring fins up to 20 square meters in size. To date, the company has over a thousand systems in service and approximately 175 in production.
