Blickle Manufacturing Facility

Newnan, GA

The new US office and distribution headquarters for a global German manufacturer of wheels and casters features a two-story, 14,500-square-foot office building and an adjacent one-story, 50,000-square-foot warehouse facility. The administration building serves engineering, operations, customer service, marketing and sales functions, and features high end office, meeting rooms, and training space. The program also includes a state-of-the-art testing lab, customer experience center, and warehouse for US distribution.

Skylights and curtainwall panels in the warehouse serve as excellent sources for natural daylight. The warehouse structure is precast concrete panel walls with steel frame and a jointless floor system; the office is steel construction with curtainwall and storefront glass, TPO roof, and metal panel exterior. In addition to designing the buildings, LS3P also facilitated the furniture selection and procurement.
