RIM’s client, Matson, is committed to providing superior reliability for more than two decades to the community of Guam. To better serve their customers, Matson decided to build a new headquarters, based in Anigua, Guam. RIM worked closely with Matson and the general contractor to design a building that would reflect their history of providing transportation to the Pacific since 1887. The inspiration came from Hawaiian Plantation Architecture, and the structure resembles stacked shipping containers. With sustainability in mind, sustainable features include energy efficient systems, low-e tinted glazing, recycled materials, and low VOC materials.
