Omega Construction has recently completed a 68,500 sf manufacturing facility and corporate office for Frenzelit North America, a division of Germany based Frenzelit Werke GmbH. The new manufacturing facility will house Frenzelit North America’s Expansion Joint Division and Frenzelit Sealing Systems, Inc. Space will be provided for Production, Sales, Marketing and Logistics departments. The Production building is a structural steel framing system with 6” think insulated metal panel walls. The floor slab is 6” reinforced concrete with light reflective hardener. The 2 story office wing is structural steel framed with exterior walls consisting of structural steel studs, insulation and EIFS. Insulated curtainwall was used to accent the Lobby entrance. The roofing system is a 60 mil white TPO membrane with R-30 insulation. To provide the European style of Frenzelit’s existing Germany facilities, many products were imported from Germany and installed under Omega’s supervision including skylights, office windows, storefront doors, toilet partitions and certain plumbing fixtures. The Production Area includes a 7.5 ton bridge crane to handle heavy and awkwardly shaped goods safely during production as well as during the loading process. Modern glass elements were used to separate the Office area from the Production Area making it possible for the office staff to remain in direct visual contact with Production employees facilitating quick communication. Frenzelit NA’s commitment to energy efficiency is evidenced by the use of LED lighting throughout the Office and Production facility.
