VES Environmental Solutions
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.

Menomonie Community Service Department
The Community Service Department of Menomonie, WI is responsible for all of the streets, sidewalks, trees, parks and storm water maintenance/repair for the city. The department was in need of more space to properly store equipment, and a much-needed heavy equipment wash rack.
To create more space in the facility, an efficient wall panel structure was a great option. Since this department is considered an emergency essential service, shutting down for construction was not possible. Thanks to on-time construction with Huffcutt’s precast wall panels, the new addition was completed before the winter season set in. The department was able to move into the addition and free up the old building for renovation during the winter.
Huffcutt provided 109 panels that were 28 feet tall, with a heavy shot blast texture to complete a customized look. With only 7 days on-site, 20,000 square feet of Huffcutt’s concrete wall panels were the perfect solution for this expansion.
