Located in Indianapolis, IN, this new 70,000 SF facility was designed for Zipp Speed Weaponry, a growing manufacturer of high tech carbon fiber bicycle components. This one story manufacturing and distribution facility, expandable to 100,000 SF, is comprised of load bearing pre-cast concrete panels and steel joist-girder roof framing with a minimum clear height of 29 feet.
A 10,000 SF first floor office contains engineering, marketing and management departments, core functions and an employee team/lunch room. A 10,000 SF mezzanine level houses a training room, advertising department and space for future office expansion.
The 60,000 SF manufacturing area is broken into three areas consisting of a temperature controlled carbon fiber forming room, a milling and finishing area, and a warehouse and shipping area. A research and development room, test lab, freezer room, dust control sanding rooms and hazardous material rooms were all incorporated. Compressed air, centralized vacuum, heat presses with localized exhaust and CNC milling machines were also accommodated.
