Ashley Furniture Automation Lab Building
Research & Development Building: Horizontal Panels
The Ashley Automation Lab is Ashley Furniture’s research and development building located on their main campus in Arcadia, WI. The single slope steel building was constructed in a tight time-frame, incorporating a modern look to compliment other Ashley buildings. The sustainability measures used were super insulated Architectural "V" Rib walls and ceiling and use of LED lighting.
The building features a 3,720 sf stand-alone mezzanine with 20 gauge 1.5C Deck, supported with masonry block walls on all four sides. ABC provided support for both stair systems. It was a challenge installing an elevator and re-positioning the stairs after the mezzanine floor structure was already delivered.
