This new construction multi-million dollar complex serves as this international company’s national headquarters and main distribution facility for their United States’ operations. The operations needed to be housed in an intricate and sophisticated building, emphasizing the company’s rich European architectural heritage while respecting and within the local environment.
In order to obtain the contemporary European styling, the Townsend team studied the company’s award winning building designs in Germany. The sleek window wall systems coupled with the exposed steel structures and banded exterior designs evokes the modern designs of its predecessors while making its own unique statement.
The facility is comprised of state of the art conveying and automated lift systems, bulk racking for hand and forklift picking, as well as an administration wing accommodating numerous technological advances. This building design was selected for publication in a book that articulates Wurth’s designs throughout the world.
