Having provided design services for the expansion of their previous facility, BL Companies was again engaged for the design of the new northeast headquarters for STIHL. The exterior of the new facility reflects the STIHL brand and provides 100,000 SF of warehouse space and 10,000 SF of office space. It was also designed to accommodate two future additions of 84,000 SF and 106,000 SF respectively.
The facility supports modern racking and automated material handling systems to ensure expanded storage capacity and efficient distribution of their products. A precast concrete skin and design-build delivery assured that the project could be completed within a very tight timeframe. A large STIHL logo integrated into the membrane roof takes full advantage of its location next to a regional airport.
