Location: Elkhart, Indiana
Architectural Design: J.A. Wagner Construction, Inc.
Project Scope: New manufacturing facility
This new, 135,000-square foot manufacturing facility consists of a Butler pre-engineered metal building. The building features truss purlins for large, open interior space and is equipped with eight 25-ton ground-mounted HVAC units, providing air conditioning to the entire facility. Three walls of the structure were designed with three-inch TextureWall™ insulated sandwich panels, giving the exterior shell a R-22 thermal rating. The roof was also assembled with two layers of insulation, providing it a R-32 thermal rating. Additionally, the front office features full-height reflective curtain wall glass panels.
"ACC Climate Control chose J.A. Wagner Construction to build a 135,000-square-foot state-of-the-art building. I have completed seven other building projects, but this was the first time we partnered with J.A. Wagner. I can honestly say it was the smoothest of the projects and we actually had an occupancy permit two weeks prior to the original completion date. I was most impressed with J.A. Wagner's project manager meetings with the subcontractors. I was always there and everyone was updated as to the progress of the project. During the process, J.A. Wagner's engineering department identified recommendations that we were able to quickly implement. We ended up with a superior energy-efficient building with the latest technology. I would highly recommend J.A. Wagner Construction to anyone for a future project."
