Markey Machinery Headquarters Building
CHG completed a three-phase, nearly $4.5 million renovation and adding a new headquarters building for the Markey Machinery plant in South Seattle. CHG completed the complex project on time and on budget.
For phase I CHG built a 50-foot tall, 9,000 square foot final assembly building using VP pre-engineered metal products. CHG designed the building to accommodate two large bridge cranes that are used to complete assembly of Markey’s custom deck machinery and winches. In phase II, CHG built a two-story, 7,500 square foot VP building for Markey Machinery’s headquarters that includes a second floor system that gave the owners considerable flexibility with its engineering, accounting, marketing and sales offices.
The third phase was the renovation of two existing plant buildings, with both architectural and structural upgrades including panel rib metal siding by VP to match the new buildings. CHG replaced translucent window panels to improve interior lighting and designed and built a 2,800 square foot pre-engineered metal crane cover for the yard adjacent to the assembly building.
“Once the owners decided on metal buildings, we chose CHG to help with the design development,” said Leon Cohen of General Consulting Services Inc., the owner’s representative for the project. “They were able to meet the budget and completed each phase within budget as well as offering design and constructability improvements throughout the process. This was the first major renovation to the 75 year old facility and increases capacity as well as cost efficiency.”
