The facility includes a steel processing plant with four high-speed overhead cranes, machine pits, primary electrical service, equipment maintenance building, locker rooms, and 15,000 SF of offices. This $20 million project included steel slitting equipment and site work, land acquisition, existing building demolition and remediation.

The corporate offices included cherry wood, fabric wall covering, granite, built-in millwork and custom cherry doors. The plant included machine pits, four 1000 long high-speed cranes, a primary electrical service and a rail spur into the building. The site included paving, lighting, landscaping and fencing.

Security systems include a power-operated entry gate and video cameras around the site and in the plant.
