Carlisle Manufacturing Materials
Fisher Construction Group
400,000 sq. ft.
Design/Build Delivers a Tailor-made Solution
Large enough to house more than eight football fields under its roof, the Carlisle Construction Materials facility is one of Fisher's largest projects built on a single footprint. Built in the Randles Business Park south of Seattle, the production plant manufactures Hunter Panels, an energy efficient insulated foam roofing material.
A global diversified company, Carlisle develops and manufactures materials for construction, transportation, food services and aerospace.
The 400,000 sq. ft. tilt-up building has 35 ft tall insulated sandwich panel walls, which were poured, set and cured, and then lifted into place and tied into the roof structure. Constructed with as many of Carlisle building products as possible, the building includes the company’s EPDM roofing and EPS Foam for wall insulation.
Designed by FSI Architects, Fisher & Sons’ architectural division, the 9-month construction project included the installation of a mile long rail spur for transporting product. All of the building’s stormwater runoff is retained and infiltrated back into the groundwater system resulting in zero stormwater runoff
Pete Franzosa, director of plant engineering for Pennsylvania-based Carlisle, said Carlisle talked to seven groups before selecting Fisher. He called Fisher "the most aggressive, full-service group we happened on."
The seventh manufacturing facility in the company’s division, this facility will produce product to meet commercial and residential market needs of the Pacific Northwest including neighboring Canadian provinces.
