The Opus Group (Opus) announced today the completion of a new 60,000-square-foot corporate headquarters for Delta Defense LLC in West Bend. The two-story building was built to accommodate Delta Defense’s growing operations and employee base, while also allowing for seamless expansion in the future.
“We’re thrilled by the result of this project and excited for Delta Defense to have a customized facility that reflects the company’s identity and business needs,” said Matt Bratzke, director, project management, Opus Design Build, L.L.C. “This project was a great fit for our design-build approach as it allowed for creativity and flexibility throughout the process and as the design evolved.”
Opus worked closely with Kahler Slater throughout the design process and incorporated input and feedback from Delta Defense’s employees to ensure the end-result had all the elements that Delta Defense needed for their business to thrive and a proper foundation for future growth. In addition to ample office space, the building includes a fulfillment area for the company’s printing and shipping services, designated training rooms, a call center, mailroom, recording studio, café, prep kitchen and an employee fitness center with locker rooms.
The building also features a unique two-story open flex space with a monument staircase that doubles as seating. The 5,000-square-foot space will serve as a site for weekly company meetings as well as a flexible location to host community events with an outdoor patio and seating area to accompany it.
Remaining close to the company’s previous location, the building is located in the West Bend Corporate Center and visible from Highway 45. The facility also includes parking for 176 cars and docks for shipping from the fulfillment center.
The building was completed in February 2017 and Delta Defense was fully operational in the space in early March. Using its unique design-build approach known as Opus DB3™, Opus has worked on 61 Client Direct Services construction projects for clients throughout the country in the past 24 months including remodels, tenant improvements and new construction projects across sectors.
