W. K. Thomas & Associates Nears Completion of the New United Plate Glass Production and Office Building
We are nearing completion of the new production and office building for United Plate Glass located west of Butler in the Kriess Road Business Park. We began sitework in September of 2013 and placed over 300 truckloads of engineered fill on the site before construction could begin. The building is a 50,100 square foot Butler Pre-engineered building with 37,830 square feet of manufacturing area used for the production of tempered glass and insulated glass units. Located at the front of the building is a two story 12,270 square foot office with a dramatic blue tinted glass facade and attractive projected cornices. The office portion of the building is a conventional steel structure also produced by Butler Manufacturing. The interior of the office features a two story lobby that that is separated by glass walls from a conference room and gym/workout area. One wall of the lobby is finished with stone veneer which is also used as an accent in the conference room. The stairs feature natural stone treads and a glass railing system. United Plate Glass is a perfect example of how the cost efficiency of a pre-engineered building system can be combined with traditional building materials such as stone, glass and Dryvit to create a stunning building at a reasonable cost. Look for another news post coming soon for more information and final photos of the completed structure.
