Industrial Return

McFarlane Aviation Manufacturing Facility


696 East 1700 Road | Baldwin City, Kansas

This project was a 24,480 square foot Ceco pre-engineered metal building with a connecting walkway to an existing building. The new facility includes offices, an expanded manufacturing area and warehouse space. The exterior features include a 2-1/2” foam core metal wall panel, Simple Saver roof insulation system, clerestory windows, and sunshades.

The addition itself includes offices, a break room, and exercise and shower facility that doubles as a storm shelter, warehousing, shipping, production areas and support offices/rooms.

The project also required expansive sitework to tie the new building into the existing facility by way of connector buildings. A new entrance was created to the site, new storm water plan, expanded sanitary lateral field, detention pond, concrete drives and parking lots, extension of the grass runway and landscaping to accent the buildings.
