Kiesland Development Services began working with Salvagnini in 1989 when the first US facility was established. The current project is unique in that it will be constructed with heavy timber framing and cross-laminated timber (CLT) wall and roof panels. The facility design will be consistent with other Salvagnini locations in Europe and South America, featuring abundant natural lighting, exposed concrete and state of the art mechanical systems.
Design partners include Professional Design Associates and Schaefer Inc., both of Cincinnati, Ohio. Conceptual design was provided by Traverso-Vighy Architetti Costabissara, Italy.
