Clayco completed work on the Sommer Allibert Industries project in Kansas City, Missouri. The Paris, France based company produces bumpers for the complete line of automobiles manufactured at the neighboring General Motors Company Fairfax production facility.
The international building design was adapted to meet local building codes and design requirements. Clayco was responsible for coordinating the design conversion, as well as negotiating the permit process.
The masonry structure devotes 100,000 square feet to manufacturing and processing space which houses injection molding machines and other manufacturing equipment; 9,000 square feet is used as office space.
The exterior of the building features a combination of masonry and horizontal architectural panels, which yield a sleek European look. At the office zone, the exterior displays horizontal glass and aluminum decorative shading devices.
