Boardriders officially opened their first stateside location in Malibu, California, which is known for their golden sand beaches, epic waves, and surf culture. This location continues Boardriders’ concept of being more than a typical retail store. The concept is an experience hub dedicated to surf, snow, and skateboarding culture. Henderson Engineers provided the building system design for the project – ensuring clients are comfortable as they enjoy the Boardriders experience. Along with offering their house brands, Quiksilver, Roxy, and DC Shoes, this flagship is to be the “ultimate hangout” for surfers. It features a café, barber shop, lounge area, art gallery, and a ceiling surfboard carousel that circles the store. In addition to the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, we designed the lighting controls to include daylight harvesting, taking advantage of the natural lighting in the space while making the lighting system energy efficient, and meeting the Title-24 Energy Code – helping Boardriders’ new space ride the wave of experiential retail.
