Widelite / Genlyte
This project is a 267,000 SF, tiltwall building with approximately 50,000 SF of finished space and associated sitework for the Genlyte Group, a light fixture manufacturer and distribution company. Features of the design included 50-foot clear space between interior columns so as not to interfere with the Owner's manufacturing process, minimum 30-foot clear height ceilings throughout the building due to large quantities of high rack storage, and four truck courts to accommodate Genlyte's shipping and receiving needs. Unique architectural features include zinc composite wall panels, a steel-framed radiused stair complete with stainless steel railing and panels, and a matching furred down sheet rock ceiling.
After construction began, they overcame a large hurdle when it was decided that a California-based sister company would also occupy the building.
