K+B Industries Corporate Headquarters

ADMINISTRATION BUILDING:

The administration building has a very contemporary architectural design and celebrates the company’s humble beginnings to their cutting edge modern day operations. The building exterior uses many different expressions and configurations of metal siding, ACM panels and painted exposed metal. The interior of the facility is very contemporary and corporate. The materials used are wood panels, stone flooring and DIRTT walls for ease in relocating and renovating in the future. The IT server brain is centrally located and encased in a 2 hour wall for protection.

SHOP BUILDING:

This project consists of a massive machine shop manufacturing space which is completely climate controlled with 24 cranes, phosphate operations, painting, high pressure Swaging operations, pipe cutting, lathing, inventory, shipping and receiving. There is a centrally located, second level business office which has visibility of all lathing operations for quality control. The facility is also equipped with men’s and women’s locker rooms, a training facility and multi-purpose room for training. The shop also has third party testing agency accommodations, gauge and tool rooms and movable glass walls for ease in relocating and renovating in the future.

CHAPEL:

A non-denominational chapel was introduced to the site for all employees of diverse faiths to have a quiet place to reflect and ask God to help all maintain a productive and healthy day at work. The building uses many materials found on the shop and administration building linking all buildings together on this 32 acre campus.
