When businesses have unique operations, they need customized solutions. When oelheld U.S., Inc. made the decision to expand and consolidate their operations in a new location, they enlisted Opus to design and construct a building tailor-made to meet the specific needs of their business. The building, consisting of office, lab, storage and warehouse space, is being constructed in the Oakview Corporate Park in West Dundee, Ill., which oelheld U.S., Inc., purchased from Opus.
A producer of machine-based lubricants and packaged oil products, oelheld needed a building that would meet all their business requirements under one roof. In early 2017, they will move operations from their current retrofitted facility to the new, 23,400-square-foot, custom-designed building, which will meet all of their current needs and allow expansion up to 15,000 square feet in the future.
In addition to the indoor spaces, the building will have dock areas custom designed for oelheld’s operation, including outside, recessed tanker truck unloading areas. A specially designed catwalk system will allow access to the tops of truck trailers for testing product. Safety is of utmost importance to oelheld, so specific safety design elements are being incorporated that protect both water and environmental systems from any potential contamination.
The building is scheduled for completion in December 2016.
