Opus Design Build, L.L.C. recently completed construction on a 41,872-square-foot warehouse expansion for Chicago Tube & Iron in Eagan, Minn.
Located near Lone Oak Road and Interstate-35, the addition provides Chicago Tube & Iron more space for its expanding operations in the metropolitan area.
“It was great to continue our relationship with Chicago Tube & Iron with this expansion,” said Jeff Mertens, senior project manager at Opus Design Build, L.L.C., in a written statement. “We were able to provide a design solution within the site constraints that allowed Chicago Tube & Iron to remain at their current location, helping retain employees.”
In addition to the warehouse expansion, Opus also updated the warehouse with an exterior insulation finishing system and remodeled existing areas of the facility. Interior remodeling included updating bathrooms and a break room, modernizing the front entry and replacing six overhead doors. During the project, mechanical and irrigation systems were incorporated and prominent signage added to the front entry and south end of the facility.
Opus Design Build, L.L.C. was the contractor and Opus AE Group, L.L.C. was responsible for structural and architectural design. MFRA, Inc. performed civil engineering and landscaping and Hallberg Engineering provided mechanical and electrical design services.
