The new manufacturing facility at Easter-Owens Electric in Arvada, CO was a design-build job for FMP Construction and ZP Architects & Engineers. This building is 27,000 square feet and is to be used as a support manufacturing building to the existing Easter Owens facility.
FMP Construction was contracted as the design-build contractor for this job. This meant employing the services of in-house design firm ZP Architects & Engineers. Normally a manufacturing building like this would present little challenge for a design firm, but the owners, along with the City of Arvada wanted something a little different!
This building is a pre-engineered steel frame and a standing seam metal roof, but the exterior walls are tilt-up concrete panels. This allows for a better look along with a lot more durability compared to traditional metal wall panels.
