    65 Commerce Buildings 2 & 3

    County Materials proudly manufactured over 520 Insulated Sandwich Wall panels, comprised of over 228,000 sq. ft. of precast concrete, for the two 65 Commerce buildings. The contractor and the erector specified the precast panels to be manufactured to meet the project’s needs and to arrive on-site ready for installation.

    County Materials Insulated Sandwich Wall panels are a trusted choice among general contractors in the greater North-Central Indiana region. Precast panels are specified for their thermal value, extended lifecycle, and fire-resistance. County Materials Insulated Sandwich Wall panels are readily available for projects that necessitate shortened construction schedules.

  • Construction Schedule Met with Unique Specifications and Winter Weather Delays

    Construction Schedule Met with Unique Specifications and Winter Weather Delays

    The Whitestown Business Center welcomed its largest construction in the area to date. This massive warehouse spans over 500,000 sq. ft. and is expandable to twice its current size with 94 dock doors, four drive-in doors, and over 300 parking spaces. The building is owned by Exeter Property Group and intended to be leased with the possibility for expansion.

    Pepper Construction of Indiana was contracted for its extensive background in modern, high performance buildings. To ensure quick installation, exceptional thermal value, and product availability, County Materials’ Insulated Sandwich Walls were specified.

    County Materials worked directly with the contractor and the erector to ensure the precast panels were manufactured with the correct specifications, allowing them to be installed upon arrival. The project design called for dock door spacing of 13’6” on center, while County Materials’ panels typically allow for 12’ on center spacing. To accommodate the unique design, County Materials’ head drafter designed a special panel that met the 13’6” requirement.

    Winter weather affected strip footing and warehouse pad preparation, which pushed panel delivery. Through the uncertainty of the weather, County Materials remained in consistent communication with the erector to schedule a new delivery date within the original construction schedule. Once preparation was complete, the panels arrived on-site to be installed, despite weather conditions. With less hours of daylight, both the erector and County Materials worked steadily to keep the project on schedule.

    The large warehouse project took over 129,300 sq.ft. of structural, loadbearing, Insulated Sandwich Walls to complete. County Materials manufactured and delivered each of 317 panels from its Whitestown, IN operation. In addition to the structural and safety benefits Insulated Sandwich Walls offer, County Materials provides unparalleled service and attention to detail to ensure each project meets expectations.
