Barrett Firearms enlisted Crain to design and build an expansion to its manufacturing facility. The expansion is 36,731 square feet of tilt up and 10,000 square feet of pre-engineered metal building.
Site work included mass grading, underground utilities, paved entrance and parking lot with curbs, site lighting, sidewalks, a concrete loading dock to accommodate tractor-trailers and a large detention pond for nearby storm water run-off that funnels through the property and totals more than 32 acres of water shed.
Special features for the facility include a high-security safe room for rifle storage, an engineering/optics design area, research and development space, a conference room and a training classroom. A clear-story rotunda in the lobby provides a unique security feature designed and constructed as an explosion-proof vestibule entrance.
