Wendell August Headquarters
Manufacturing, Warehouse Distribution & Retail Building
Designed with future expansion in mind, this beautiful custom steel building is the headquarters, manufacturing, and retail area for Wendell August. An immense amount of coordination between the Builder, Nucor Building Systems, and the architects using BIM 3D technology was necessary to ensure every detail was accounted for.
The result was a customized, contiguous pre-engineered facility featuring a 160’ x 80’ single slope structure housing the retail space connected to a 180’ x 226’ structure with stone piers, Nucor Classic Wall, and a 226’ architectural sign band on the exterior of the manufacturing area. The exterior of the retail area features cement lap-siding and trim, three dormers to let in an abundance of natural light, and a decorative metal sign tower. The facility also used Nucor ClearBay® bolted roof joist system, with the exposed steel in the retail store painted white.
