Client: Penn Color
Location: Milton, WI
Scope: New 52,920 sf floor area and 17,622 sf mezzanine
Penn Color is a company specializing in the production of pigmented additives for the manufacturing of colored plastic products. Based in Pennsylvania, Penn Color constructed this new Milton Plant to serve its growing Midwest business. The new building consists of 52,920 square feet of floor area and 17,622 square feet of additional mezzanine area. Challenging aspects of this project included integration of the company’s manufacturing equipment into a multi-level production process. Vapor exhaust, dust collection, and chilled water systems essential to the production process, also added complexity to the design. A research and development lab, employee locker rooms, break room, and executive offices are also included. Clearstory windows on the East and West facades fill the production area with natural lighting.
