Quantum Marine Engineering and Quantum Stabilizers will be moving to a new eco-friendly building in Ft Lauderdale

Quantum Marine Engineering and Quantum Stabilizers Inc broke ground for the building of their new international headquarters in Ft Lauderdale, Florida earlier this week.

The new environmentally conscientious design will be a three-storey 30,000sq ft LEED certified building and will facilitate the entire company under one roof. It is located directly opposite Quantum’s existing offices and manufacturing facility.

“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.” said John Allen, president of Quantum.

Ergonomically designed and featuring the latest in “green” technology to minimise energy consumption, the project uses a conventional shell construction (masonry, concrete and glass) with durable interior finishes for the administrative offices, training rooms, R&D and engineering department, machine shops, and parts department.

The new building has been specifically designed to allow for future expansion for administrative, R&D, design and manufacturing.

Quantum claims to be the world’s largest manufacturer of Zero Speed stabilizers for superyachts featuring fins of up to 20sq m in size. To date, the company has over 1,000 systems in service and approximately 175 in production.
