Client Profile

Gordon Holdings, Polystrand Inc. is a specialty manufacturer of thermoplastic composites that reduce weight and maintain exceptional strength.

Project Description

Gordon Holdings wanted an energy efficient, cost effective, and industrial-office hybrid building that would project a strong image to the community, reflect the entrepreneurial success of the company, and be completed on a fast track schedule.
