Laitram - Machine Shop Expansion

Woodward Design+Build has been Laitram’s Contractor of choice for the past 10 years and the relationship continued with the design and building of the Laitram Machine Shop Expansion. Woodward Design+Build worked with HMS Architecture, Woodward Steel Group, and Butler Building Company in the design of a state of the art Structural Steel and Metal Wall panel building that maximized the space, offered exceptional energy efficiency and looked to resemble the current machine shop.

Work involved a 22,800 square foot expansion to Laitram’s existing facility including an entirely self supporting steel structure, new mechanical/HVAC systems, electrical systems, three new overhead cranes, emergency generator back up, lounge and restroom facilities, new site paving and landscaping. This new facility utilized a mezzanine that housed all mechanical and electrical equipment while also allowing plenty of room for storage and possible future working space.

Other projects Woodward has completed for Laitram include the Injection Molding Facility, Thermodrive Belt Manufacturing Facility and Front Office.
