Three months ago, German-based Bürkert Fluid Control Systems moved into its brand new U.S. headquarters in Huntersville, North Carolina. Situated on a parcel of land nearly 100 acres in size, this modern facility was constructed with growth in mind. Not only does the building have immediate square footage readied for production expansion, it also has “knock-out” walls to allow for actual building expansion. SC Railing Company is pleased to have collaborated with locals, McCombs Steel Company, Inc. and Edifice, Inc., to provide more than 1,300 linear feet of glass and stainless steel railings for this project. Our Track Rail, Monaco, and Casino railing systems were utilized throughout the office and production facility on the Bürkert campus.
Our Track Rail structural glass railing system was installed with ½” glass, stainless steel cladding, and a stainless steel top cap. One-line stainless handrail was added at stair locations. Level and stair applications of our Casino stainless steel cable railing were installed in the production facility. Monaco, our post-mounted glass and stainless steel railing, was applied to the lower level of the stairs within the office. In keeping with the Track Rail system, ½” glass and stainless steel top cap were employed therein. As with most interior applications, our standard grade 304 stainless steel was used throughout the project.
As the banners at Bürkert read, “Innovation has a new home!” Huntersville is a Charlotte-area suburb, which finds itself a veritable hub for innovative modern production facilities in recent years. Bürkert Fluid Control Systems is one of three such businesses to call this area in Huntersville home, altogether employing 400 people. Bürkert expects growth in the next few years to bring about 50 additional jobs. We anticipate being a part of future building expansion on the Bürkert campus, and are excited to watch this community grow with the needs of innovative tech development and manufacturing.
Upon completion, this 120,000 square-foot facility earned the Excellence in Construction Eagle Award from Associated Builders and Contractors of the Carolinas, presented to General Contractor, Edifice, Inc. There are many reasons to be proud of this project, and we are honored to have been the preferred railings provider.
