VES Global Headquarters, located in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin is known for designing Animal-Centered Environments that help improve animal health, wellbeing and productivity on dairy farms throughout the world. VES is now showcasing its commitment to the local community with the construction of its state-of-the-art global headquarters and research facility opening in December 2020.
With the rapid growth of the company, VES has outgrown their current facility. They were in need of a larger building to house inventory, an increased number of employees and a place to test and research their products. It was important for the company to have an on-time construction schedule to avoid disruption to their customers.
Huffcutt was happy to help Hoeft Construction build a 51,000 + square foot structure. Providing 231 precast concrete wall panels that utilized a custom wood grain form liner designed specifically for the customer’s needs for architectural detail. Huffcutt supplied insulated exterior and solid interior walls to the site and the installation process took only 4 weeks. Another precast solution provided was 4 precast panels to create an elevator shaft within the building. A process that can easily take weeks to complete with a block build, took less than one day to produce in the plant and only 3 hours to install. (See the time-lapse video here) It was a pleasure to be a part of a local project and see the growth of a company that will continue to bring jobs and resources to the Chippewa Valley.
