Harbour served as the design-builder for Neil’s two-story 110,000 SF distribution warehouse, which also serves as the company’s corporate headquarters. The building is a precast structure with a reinforced concrete foundation, structural steel frame, three decorative exterior canopies, a truck interior loading dock, and a TPO roof.

The interior design features a mix of enclosed offices and meeting spaces within an open office floor plan. A large “town hall” serves as a multi-purpose space for break times and impromptu meetings for employees to engage with each other. The materials utilized on the exterior included precast concrete, aluminum storefront glazing, and a stacked stone veneer.

The project also included 8-acres of site work with underground utilities and hydrocarbon removal structures, a sustainable stormwater management system, and water-efficient landscaping.

The project’s increased ventilation and high-end lighting systems allow for constant energy savings based on current sun exposure throughout the day. With this process, Neil’s building then becomes increasingly efficient when unoccupied.
