This project is a design-build office/truck warehouse pre-engineered metal building. The contractor is Christensen Building Group, and the owner is Nebraska Salt & Grain. The 8,200-square-foot building is just one component of a 25-acre rail transload facility in Cleburne, Texas. The function of the building is to serve as office and warehouse space for daily transload operations. The program for the building includes the following: Office Space, Large Breakroom, Conference Room, Lab, Restrooms, Storage, and Large Warehouse space. Being a design-build project, the Contractor is contracted separately with a civil engineer, and the builder’s subcontractors are delegating all MEP and structural engineering design.
Our role as the Architect was to design the facility and internal space plan, coordinate with the Contractor’s delegated design subs, facilitate the permitting process, and ensure the intent of the contract documents was met during the construction process. To fast track this project, we coordinated an early site permit package with the City of Cleburne to allow the Contractor to begin work prior to issuing the building permit.
Because of our great working relationship with Nebraska Salt and Grain, we are also designing a similar project in the State of Nebraska. We believe our dedication to exceptional customer service is a significant reason for repeat client success.
