Speculative Furniture Showroom, Office and Warehouse


  • 180,000 s.f.
  • Greensboro, NC


West & Stem partnered with Landmark Builders of the Triad to design a new high-bay racking facility for a furniture company in Greensboro, NC.  The 180,000 sf footprint building houses both a 2-story office and showroom component along with warehouse storage and a small repair shop area.  The company, headquartered in Belgium, has chosen to express its branding through the use of natural exposed materials (exposed concrete, painted steel framing and wood).  The perimeter panels are designed as insulated tilt-up concrete wall panels to allow a finished interior concrete surface.  Structural framing includes 50’x54’ column spacing to accommodate 10’ clear racking aisles and a 60’ clear speed bay along the dock elevation to maximize distribution and loading efficiency and safety.  The building is designed for a minimum clear height of 36’.
