The design of Magnetrol’s new 237,000 square foot corporate International Headquarters located on 12 acres of land in Aurora, Illinois. Magnetrol is a manufacturer of high quality industrial grade instrumentation for critical measurements of liquid and gas levels and flows. An existing vacant building of sufficient size to accommodate Magnetrol’s continuous growth and expansion was identified, purchased, and renovated and re-purposed for the project. The building renovation supports the administrative and manufacturing functions, as well as the technologically advanced research and development arm of the company. Master planned site improvements included the addition of 150 parking spaces, new basketball court, new putting green, and landscape improvements. The improved entry plaza enhanced the exterior façade of the existing building, giving it a strong presence and identifies the property uniquely as Magnetrol’s.
The 74,000 s.f. expanded office space includes a new 15,000 s.f. mezzanine, that houses the administrative functions including management, engineering, marketing, accounting, R&D, tech support, and training. The 163,000 s.f. manufacturing area is partially climate controlled and houses the production facilities, development lab and receiving and shipping functions for the company.
