Former manufacturing & warehouse facility gains new life as distribution center
When Quaker Oats closed their manufacturing plant and warehouse in Shiremanstown, PA, the 712,500 s/f building was left vacant for years, before a new owner brought a vision to repurpose the building for an updated use. Keystruct Construction led the Design/Build team and worked closely with the owner, Endurance Real Estate Group, to create a multi-tenant, modern distribution center from the old structure. During the initial pre-construction meetings, the Keystruct team worked with Endurance representatives and SAA Architects to determine the best approach to create the tenant spaces. The original facility had been constructed in stages, beginning in 1995, leaving broken transitions between the interior spaces, and a disordered exterior appearance.
