A second goal of the renovation was to increase the office footprint and amenities. New spaces were created including a visitor welcome and reception area, a board room, a product display area, and an executive kitchenette. Additionally, the project included new private office and cube workstation space. Our team also installed built-in casework for the display of a variety of Tramontina
products. This handsome feature now greets visitors and guests who enter the building. The Tramontina project also included “face lifts” for existing offices, as well as minor alterations to enhance security and traffic flow.
While the official start date was March 22, 2017, this design-build project kicked off with placement of thermal blankets over the expansion area in December 2016 to lessen the effect of frost on the ground. This allowed us to break ground in mid-March without having to employ a ground thaw heating unit. As a result, the entire concrete slab-on-grade addition was poured by April 7. This allowed completion of the Butler® pre-engineered steel building expansion in late summer. The entire project was finished January 12, 2018.
