Gordon Holdings, Polystrand Inc. is a specialty manufacturer of thermoplastic composites that reduce weight and maintain exceptional strength. Headquartered in their new state-of-the art facility, Gordon Holdings is the largest manufacturing building in the world that produces continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastic material.
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.
Designed to produce 100 million pounds of composite material annually with a goal of having a zero waste operation, the design team utilized Tilt-Up Construction panels to develop a high performance and low maintenance building. With construction completed in just 4 months, the signature design of the facility has been nominated for best NAIOP Industrial Development of the Year and is a 2013 Tilt-Up Achievement Award Winner.
