Knife River Corporation

This building was built as an operations, dispatch and personnel training facility for Knife River.

The Knife River Corporation needed to relocate their Western Regional office to their Linnton facility and opted for a modular design to lower costs and allow for tight time constraints. The exterior combination of rough sawn plywood siding, batts installed every 24 inches, lap siding and faux rock stone surrounding the glass entry and the columns supporting the porch fits in nicely with the surrounding area. A 6/12 hinged roof and standing seam metal roof was assembled and installed on site. The lobby has slate flooring with a dropped soffit and recessed lighting. The building features 9 ft ceilings and all of the hallways are one-hour rated. The interior walls are tape/texture with stain and lacquer doors, windows, floor and door trim. The customer finished the building with beautiful landscaping, concrete entries, sidewalks and paved parking.
