Architectural Testing (ATI) announces the opening of their new location at 2658 Electronics Way, West Palm Beach, Florida. Designed to replace the company's Riviera Beach location, this larger, more capable test facility offers 20,000 square feet of indoor space with 24 feet of ceiling clearance, a 128' by 40' outdoor mock-up wall, state of the art equipment, as well as improved office space and conference areas.
ATI's West Palm Beach location (ATI-WPB) is one of 14 strategically placed full-service laboratories across the United States and Canada. It currently offers the following test disciplines: air, water, structural laboratory and field testing, impact and cycling testing, full-scale performance mock-up testing, as well as non-structural and structural roof uplift testing.

"We believe our new facility will further enhance the customer experience when working with us in South Florida," said Jeff McGovern , Director – Regional Operations for ATI. "Our close proximity to the Miami-Dade County Building Department allows ATI staff to meet face to face with Building Code Officials, thus improving the communication process during product approvals and maintaining the hands-on approach and guidance our clients have come to expect."
With two acres of space remaining on site, ATI's West Palm Beach facility looks to future growth opportunities including the addition of capabilities to offer wind-driven rain testing, uplift testing for structural metal roof systems, Safety Glazing Certification Council (SGCC) testing, Insulating Glass Certification Council (IGCC) testing, and thermal testing in accordance with the requirements of NFRC 102, AAMA 1503 and ASTM C1363.
