Groundbreaking set for new facility
Corporate Contractors Inc. and Blackhawk Transport Inc. will break ground next week on their new office building
June 4, 2014 (BELOIT, WI): Corporate Contractors Inc. (“CCI”) and Blackhawk Transport Inc. announced today their plans for a groundbreaking ceremony. The event will take place on Tuesday, June 10th at 9:00am at the site adjacent to CCI’s limestone quarry on the corner of Gateway Blvd and Town Hall Rd.
“CCI has been making plans for this facility since 2012 when we purchased the limestone quarry from Bob Halderson – Custom Ditching,” explained Brad Austin, President of CCI. “Although it’s bittersweet since we will be leaving the downtown area, the new location is necessary to accommodate our growth while bringing all of our services together at one site.” continued Austin.
Designed by Bray Architects, the bi-level structure will house CCI on the upper floor and Blackhawk Transport on the lower level. The highly sustainable design includes limestone cladding intermixed with corrugated metal panels and heavy timber style framing accents. Separate upper and lower parking areas will serve each company and a walk bridge will be constructed over a patio area that connects the upper parking lot to the second level. Inside, the design will integrate heavy timber for structural beams/posts, exposed wood ceilings, polished concrete floors and re-purposed glass panels.
Once complete, the headquarters will showcase many new products and technologies available in today’s commercial construction and clients will enjoy the convenient interstate access.
“As Blackhawk Transport continues to expand in the market place it is critical that we provide our associates with a facility that can handle our space and technology needs while properly catering to our clients,” said Mike Holloway, President and CEO of Blackhawk Transport. “I look forward to us being in a visible location with easy access from the interstate.”
Demolition of an existing structure on the project site will begin immediately after the ceremony.
