Neil Enterprises Corporate Headquarters and Distribution Facility
Founded in 1961, Neil Enterprises is a photo novelties and photo promotional products manufacturer serving the needs of many different industries: professional photographers, retailers, special events, instant printing, embroidery, craft, educational, and ad specialty.
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, including underground utilities and hydrocarbon removal structures, a sustainable storm-water management system, and water-efficient landscaping.
Increased ventilation and high-end lighting systems allow for constant energy savings based on current sun exposure throughout the day. The building then becomes increasingly efficient when unoccupied.
