Vortex Optics eyed combining operations from seven different facilities into an everything-in-one world headquarters building. The manufacturer and distributor of outdoor optics including binoculars, monoculars for birders and outdoor enthusiasts, and a range of gun scopes and sights for hunters, will combine Class A office space, display and viewing areas for customers, warehousing and manufacturing in the building in Barneveld, Wis.
The tilt-up wall panels for the building were designed by raSmith’s engineering group which provided the structural engineering for the 274,000-square-foot manufacturing and warehousing areas, the Class A office space and second-floor patio areas. A separate 30,000-square-foot garage and storage facility was also designed for Vortex, which sells its products worldwide.
At raSmith, we value people and help employees grow within their careers. As our connection to the client, we encourage employees to be their creative best and support them in cultivating good ideas that solve our clients’ challenges. It’s the diversified experience and holistic perspective we bring that set us apart. We are creative beyond engineering.
