Nesper International Plant Expansion

Principle Construction was hired to add 11,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space at Nesper International. The project has no interior columns and a clear span of 75 feet. Three cranes are hung and supported by the roof. The concrete slab is topped with a Sikka product to add an orange peel 10,000 lbs/sf protective coating. The addition is located on the back of the existing plant. The Design-Build team consisted of Smith Design Group for architectural design, and Starzer Brady Fagan for structural design. Nesper is a German based firm and this is their only U.S. operation. They manufacture contact rivets, stamped parts and plastic assemblies for the electrical and electronic industries.
