EAST EARL, Pa. – Kinsley Construction, York, Pennsylvania, said it was selected as general contractor for a new office addition at Conestoga Wood Specialties’ headquarters building in Lancaster County. The eight-month long construction project, which began in May 2017, is expected to be completed in January 2018.
The new 16,000-square-foot, two-story building will include the Conestoga Wood Specialties' Network Operations Center, which will provide centralized computer command via fiber optics to Conestoga Wood’s five manufacturing facilities.
The building structure will be steel-frame with masonry veneer. The interior will feature glass office walls and high-tech electrical systems. This is Kinsley’s second project with the specialty manufacturer; the first was a 47,000-square-foot plant expansion completed in 2016. Conestoga Wood Specialties also recently completed a 47,000-square-foot addition to its East Earl, Pennsylvania, facility to consolidate and expand its finishing operation and streamline capabilities. The cabinet components manufacturer cited consistent market growth and a rising demand for painted kitchens among the reasons for the expansion.
