United Plate Glass Company has established itself as a high-quality and reliable company in distributing and fabricating custom architectural glass and aluminum products. Owners, Mike and Joyce Cully, turned to W.K. Thomas and Associates when they decided to add a third building to their campus-like facility. W.K. Thomas had done additions to the first two buildings to expand production and manufacturing space. For the third building, Mike and Joyce had a vision for a “showpiece.”

They wanted an office building with plenty of glass and an aluminum storefront to feature the products they sell and manufacture. After successful work on the first two buildings, they chose a local architect and W.K. Thomas to make their vision come to life.

This facility was the perfect application for a Butler “Hybrid” building. The production area was a typical Butler Widespan pre-engineered building, featuring wide open space with minimal columns and the reliable MR-24 roof at a low cost per square foot. The office portion was engineered and fabricated by Butler’s Conventional Steel division, and features distinctive angles, two story lobby, expansive areas of curtainwall glass and a conventional EPDM roof system. The W.K. Thomas team was excited to undertake this unique project with a lot of visual appeal.

New Building Features

  • Two-story entrance lobby
  • Beautiful staircase with glass railing
  • Two loading docks
  • One drive through bay
  • 7.5-ton crane
  • High volume of ventilation
  • Butler MR 24 roof

Mike and Joyce are thrilled to work in a building that truly showcases their work and their product. Anyone who visits United Plate Glass Company can see that this third building establishes the company as a major player in the glass business.

United Plate Glass is a first-class business with a beautiful campus, which helps increase their efficiency and provide a pleasing environment for their employees. W.K. Thomas has been proud to partner with United Plate Glass over the years as they have grown and looks forward to many more years of working together.
