This 105,500 square foot corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility was delivered on a design/build basis for Design Ready Controls, Inc. (DRC) in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. DRC is a premier supplier of control panel solutions for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) serving the HVAC, oil and gas, water, and alternative energy market sectors.
The build-to-suit features an 83,200 square foot state-of-the-art production and warehouse area with a 28′ clear height, two drive-in doors, six dock-high doors, LED lighting and an ESFR sprinkler system. Accessed through the main entryway, a two-story corporate office component integrates numerous open and private offices, conference rooms, a break room and areas for research and development.
The facility was constructed utilizing precast concrete panels and incorporates energy-efficient features such as an in-floor radiant thermal mass heat system that energizes during off-peak hours. In addition, the infrastructure was designed to accommodate the future addition of solar panels.
