Opus Time Lapse: Earth City Spec & Johnstone Supply HQ Completion

More about this project
On one of the last developable properties in the St. Louis suburb of Earth City, Mo., we delivered a two-building development – one spec and one build-to-suit.

Johnstone Supply HQ

Having outgrown its previous facility, Johnstone Supply enlisted Opus to centralize their operations in a 45,000-square-foot headquarters and distribution center.

Custom designed to support the needs of the HVAC equipment and parts supplier, the building has 10,000 square feet of office space. It features a working lab and training center where the company provides hands-on certification training for St. Louis County mechanical licensees. The balance of the building – 35,000 square feet – is a distribution center.

Speculative Industrial Building

On the remaining 9.5 acres, we designed and constructed a 111,000-square-foot speculative industrial building. It can accommodate multiple tenants and features 32-foot clear height, 27 dock positions, including two drive-in positions and clerestory windows to maximize natural light and wall space.
