AGC is a manufacturing company in Hillsboro, OR, that needed to add additional dust collector units to support its expanding production process. There was not enough room in its existing facility for the new units, so it was decided to build an addition to the existing manufacturing building. Cascade worked with AGC to determine the best size, shape, and location for the addition. This included locating the reinforcing in the existing concrete tilt-up walls, so the optimum location for the new wall penetrations could be determined. The addition was constructed of steel framing, similar to a manufactured metal building. This framing style was selected for its economy, durability and the simplicity of making possible future alterations to the new structure.
