DuraTech Industries

La Crosse, Wi | Food + Industrial

Overview

To meet productivity and workflow goals, DuraTech partnered with ISG to connect two existing buildings through the construction of a new building that bridges them together.


Opportunity

Continued growth and opportunities to make processes more efficient led to DuraTech Industries seeking a new production facility that connects two of the company’s existing buildings.

Solution

Through the completion of a design study for DuraTech Industries, ISG set out to connect two existing buildings with a single, two-story facility. Each approximately 25,000-30,000-square-foot level required accommodations for intricate equipment and production layouts. The first floor of the building includes more production space, warehousing, loading docks, offices, conference rooms, and a clean room for printing. The second story contains areas for employees such as break rooms, a kitchen and a patio. The facility meets all state and federal building codes, as well as requirements set by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). ISG’s streamlined approach led designs for everything from the new building’s general aesthetics to the fire suppression systems installed throughout.
