Summer has been a busy season for all, with no exception for the team here at HCM. Amidst shared brat & brisket lunches and sunny boat cruises, HCM has been diligently working on the design of expanded warehouse production space at Andersen Corp. Headquarters in Bayport, MN. This expansion adds extrusion capabilities for Andersen’s proprietary Fibrex® material, which will help support the sales growth of their quickly expanding 100 Series window products.
Construction took off on the Andersen Pasture Warehouse Building in May and is set to be completed by the end of the year. The 60,000 SF expansion is estimated to create approximately 40 more jobs for the corporation to support their rapidly growing production needs.
Design of the expansion integrates the existing building with new construction through a continuation of the gable roof structure to the North and an expansion of a high ceiling storage space to the South. Construction on both ends consists of a precast shell, designed to color match the existing CMU of the original building.
A unique portion within the scope of this project addresses environmental sustainability of the site, through the construction of a large infiltration basin to the west of the building designed by Barr Engineering (construction progress shots below).
Stay tuned for more updates as construction approaches completion!
