Project Size
25,000 sf

This addition for a central Iowa farm management, insurance and real estate company is currently under construction and scheduled for completion in July.

Project Description

View from North

The addition more than doubles the square footage of the original office building by providing nearly 20,000 SF of new space. The original 12,000 SF will be remodeled at the completion of the addition project. A new main entry will bring visitors into an expansive new waiting and reception area with elevator access to the lower level.

Entry to addition

Current farm management and real estate divisions will be moved into the 12,000 SF main level of the addition while executive offices and administrative support will occupy the remodeled main level of the original building. The new accessible lower level will feature a large multi-purpose conference room capable of holding up to 60 persons for training sessions.

New Construction

The exterior of the addition is designed to blend with the original while providing a sense of hierarchy to the new main entry. The lower level is exposed on the back side of the building to provide at grade entry to a vehicle storage space for three company vehicles. Mechanical systems consist of geo-thermal heat pumps and a well field with additional capacity to retrofit the original building with new geo-thermal heating and cooling during the remodeling.
