Car Wash Makeover! … air freshener with that?

Rainbow Car WashKiesland begins work this week on a total makeover of the AAA Rainbow Car Wash located at 5215 Madison Road.  The facility has been an icon for east siders since 1964, featuring top notch service, reasonable prices (and no tipping policy) for generations of motorists.  Recently, AAA-Allied Group purchased the business from the 3rd generation owners with plans to enhance the experience and expand the franchise.

Upgrades include brand new state-of-the-art wash equipment, new LED lighting throughout and a host of aesthetic upgrades.  Under normal circumstances 6-8 weeks might be required to complete this type of retrofit.  For this project, crews will work a 24/7 schedule to accomplish the makeover in 2 WEEKS!  If all goes well, the carwash will re-open October 13.

New Steel Center at Dayton Airport

New Steel Center at Airport Site

Vandalia, Ohio – Dallas-based SB SPECIALTY METALS LLC is now the first tenant at Air Commerce Center, the former UPS sort facility being developed near the Dayton International Airport. The 164,000 square foot regional hub steel service center was recently completed by Kiesland Development Services.

SB Specialty Metals serves a variety of manufacturing customers in a wide range of industries including automotive, aerospace, energy and heavy equipment. The new centralized facility will supply all of the company’s service centers which in turn, ship steel to customers. The former air freight hub was an attractive logistics opportunity for SB, given its central location near I-75 and I-70, flexible building design and low cost to occupy.

Project developer, Air Commerce, LLC – a subsidiary of INDUSTRIAL REALTY GROUP (IRG) acquired the 950,000 sf air freight hub facility last year, which had been vacant since 2005. Los Angeles-based IRG has specialized in redeveloping large industrial facilities on a national basis. With a portfolio of 35MM square feet in Ohio alone IRG is a market leader in this unique segment of the real estate industry. Other local industrial IRG developments include the former GM Moraine Assembly Plant, Ford Batavia Transmission Plant, former Delco Facilities in Dayton and the former Dayton Tire and Rubber Company, also in Dayton.

Kiesland was hired in September 2012 to provide design/build services for the project on a fast-track basis. The new facility includes expanded loading dock facilities, heavy cranes, power distribution as well as 9,000 square feet of office. Kiesland worked closely with Cleveland, Ohio based Construction Resources One, Ohio Realty Advisors and Cincinnati based KBA Architects to complete the project.

Presto Foods

Presto Finds Recipe for Expansion

Monroe, Ohio – Earlier this year, Presto Foods www.prestofoods.com a leading midwest restaurant wholesaler of pizza, Italian and deli foods was quickly running out of space in their Monroe, Ohio headquarters. Presto needed to add office space and conferencing facilities to better serve their customers in southwest Ohio. The Kiesland team had worked with Presto previously in 2005 when Presto acquired an existing building and expanded it to include freezer/cooler warehouse space. Now it was time to address the sales/administrative side of the business which had been stuffed into a less than ideal workspace.

Presto Turtlecreek Conference RoomFortunately, the building allowed for expanding the office onto an existing storage mezzanine. The challenge was to economically construct 5,000 square feet of office space on the mezzanine that would tie-in with the warehouse and the 1st floor offices while meeting egress building codes that didn’t exist when the building was originally built. Kiesland collaborated with Architect, Mike Wentz of Wentz Design to develop a floor plan “topper” that would meet the needs for good circulation and stay within an aggressive budget. Work started in June 2011 and wrapped up in October 2011.

Siemens Industries

Siemens Industry Invests in Lebanon!

Lebanon, Ohio – Siemens MBCU Repair Group recently moved into a new 51,200 sf leased facility located in the Kingsview Industrial Park in Lebanon, Ohio.

Siemans Production and Repair FacilityThe Siemens Industry group provides specialized repair and testing of electrical motor controls which are utilized in industrial equipment such as pumps and machine tools. The group employs a staff of approximately 60 highly skilled engineers and repair technicians who service Siemens customers worldwide from this location. Through acquisitions and mergers, the MBCU repair group is a “descendent” of the former Cincinnati Milacron machine tool organization that was formerly housed in a South Lebanon facility which dated back to the 1970’s. When Siemens approached Kiesland in 2010, they specified a desire for a state of the art facility that would provide a more modern and efficient environment, allow for new green technology and provide for future growth of the business. They also sought to use sophisticated Siemens electrical and building automation products wherever possible.

The new production/repair facility designed by the Kiesland team provides a highly flexible work cell floor plan to facilitate growth and adaptability for future changes to the business. In addition, employees enjoy abundant natural light, temperature/humidity control throughout and conductive epoxy flooring on the production floor. The facility also houses secure data storage, product testing areas and a large engineering office with conferencing facilities.

Kiesland provided design/build services for the project and was closely involved with coordinating a phased move from the old facility. The design work commenced in January 2011 with construction substantially completed by September 30, 2011. The completed project was recently sold to Monmouth Real Estate who will add it to their extensive portfolio of net leased corporate properties.
