Tralo Companies

Owatonna, MN | Commercial


Tralo Companies, Mohs Contracting, and ISG elevated the Tralo identity through the design and construction of a new facility.


As a growing, family owned and operated trucking company, Tralo Companies recognized an opportunity to prepare them for the future by expanding and increasing their corporate visibility. They set out to construct a new corporate headquarters and purchased land along Interstate 35 in Owatonna, Minnesota.


ISG provided architecture, interior design, and structural engineering services for the new facility. ISG incorporated branding by weaving the Tralo corporate colors into the exterior structure through a vertical band of red glazing on the front façade, black framing for the glass, and a charcoal metal roof. Conference rooms were placed along the perimeter and translucent clerestory glazing was added to provide occupants with daylight. ISG identified finishes and materials to embody the industrial nature of the trucking company’s brand including wood ceilings and an exposed wood and metal roof structure. The services provided by ISG led to a successful project that fulfilled the client’s goal of developing a headquarters building that embodied their identity while also meeting their increasing space and technology needs.
