This 83,500 square-foot Butler Building expansion for Meyda Tiffany in Yorkville, NY began on site in early August of 2000. The planning process, however, began nearly (2) years earlier when the owner of this manufacturer and distributor of stained glass products, contacted our office to discuss his expansion needs. The relationship between our firms had begun in 1993 when Meyda purchased an abandoned 60,000 square-foot facility and contacted us to replace a 24,000 square-foot area with a new pre-engineered building. We were successful in completing that design/build project and were able to build on our relationship to obtain this new project, which will more than double the size of the current facilities. The new project includes a 63,380 square-foot manufacturing and warehouse area with a 5,600 square-foot first floor showroom, 5,600 square-foot second floor photography and office area, as well as a 7,800 square-foot warehouse mezzanine. Once the showroom is complete, we will renovate the existing offices and showroom to a new 7,000 square-foot office area. The warehouse and manufacturing area is scheduled for completion in December 2000, the showroom for February, and the office renovations for April 2001.
