Volk Transfer

Mankato, MN | Food + Industrial

Overview

ISG designed a warehouse and shipping facility that also accommodated the corporate office headquarters of Volk Transfer’s business.


Opportunity

Volk Transfer provides shipping, warehousing, and logistics for a wide variety of customers both regionally and long-haul. With continual growth it was apparent they needed a larger and more modern facility.

Solution

The selected location for Volk Transfer’s new facility was adjacent to US14 in Mankato, MN, which is an inter-regional highway corridor. The site is also very visible from the heavily traveled highway which was maximized for exposure when designing and siting the prominent building. A major site challenge was the existence of shallow bedrock. To minimize excavation costs, the building site was raised which also reduced the need for utility excavation.

The bold new building was constructed of economical and durable precast concrete which allowed for a shortened construction schedule. The facility, which encompasses shipping and warehousing, also serves as the company’s headquarters. Therefore, designs required docking and warehouse space as well as a modern office that reflects the quality service the company provides. This was accomplished through a two-story design with a distinct, vaulted entryway and red exterior accents that give prominence to the Volk logo that faces the high volume roadway.
