Supporting your process, streamlining your workflow, maximizing your capacity

Your industrial facility should support your operations, helping direct the flow of materials and machinery while maximizing your productive space. At The Korte Company, our process starts with a keen set of ears and dedicated listening to best understand just how you want to use your facility. We then design and build your facility specifically to support your operation. From production and manufacturing to logistics and distribution, we’re seasoned in building facilities that support a range of systems and processes, including:

  • Full-scale manufacturing lines
  • Heavy machinery
  • Raw materials processing
  • Robotic KIVA systems
  • Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (AS/RS)
  • Floor, wall and roof-supported conveyor systems with pick pods

When it comes to building systems and structures, we select what’s best for the job. In addition to classic brick and mortar buildings, we’ve delivered some of the most complex industrial construction facilities using a range of materials, technologies and project approaches. At the end of the day, our facilities need to perform so our clients can do what they do best.

We build the front office too

Many industrial facilities depend on a well-organized, well-planned front office to manage operations, fulfill orders and solve customer problems. We’ve built offices and headquarters that some of our nation’s biggest companies are proud to call home.

Building smart with a best-value approach

Our team-oriented, Design-Build approach separates our industrial construction services from the rest of the construction industry. We bring collaboration and innovation into industrial construction by uniting engineering, architecture, construction and trade contracting professionals on one team from start to finish. Elements of construction can be nested and overlap with elements of design, leading to fast-track delivery and savings. Designs incorporate cost, schedule and constructability expertise, paving the way for facilities to meet the specific demands of industrial use. Our project teams identify efficiencies, savings and solutions to potential problems at project onset.

For an example of how this works, your manufacturing or processing equipment can place ultra-heavy point loads on your floor, walls or roof. We collaborate with specialty contractors and your team to define the layout of your industrial operation, then design and build your facility to withstand the heaviest load demands you’ll place on it. Your facility supports the best possible operation, while saving you money. That’s building smart.

We build efficiencies into your facility

We promote logistical, operational and energy efficiencies with design and construction. Our team evaluates how materials flow in, through, and out of your operation and designs a facility that maximizes logistical efficiency by supporting your workflow. We identify the building systems that fit your project budget and reduce your long-term operating costs, which can sometimes exceed construction costs. With more than 80 LEED-certified, green construction projects under our belts, we determine the energy-efficiency investments that pay off and deliver savings in the shortest payback periods. And we provide a clear picture of project costs, delivering the best solutions for your budget.

We get the job done

Through the years, we’ve built millions of square feet from coast to coast for the nation’s biggest producers and distributors. Our reliable project delivery is a big reason we’re a recognized leader in Design-Build and one of the most trusted industrial construction companies nationwide.
