Designer: Story Design, Ltd.
Project Size: 6,720 square feet
Summit Farms, LLC, – a diversified farming operation based in Alden, Iowa – had quickly outgrown its original 6,644-square-foot office building due to increasing international demand for environmentally sustainable agricultural practices. Looking to expand, the company, which is currently involved in row crop, pork and beef production, as well as purebred Charolais cattle and draft horse operations, selected Story as the design-build
contractor to add an extra 6,720 square feet to its existing, single-story building. The project started in October 2011 and was completed five months later in March 2012. In addition to adding more space for offices, cubicles, storage rooms and a copy center, the job also included remodeling 3,100 square feet of the existing office building and updating the mechanical, electrical and sprinkler systems.
