Sharon, MA – Senior Metal Bellows, a 60-year-old precision components manufacturer, broke ground with Dacon last fall for a two-story, 47,000sf addition to its Sharon facility.
The project consists of a flexible 25,700sf manufacturing space on the first floor with a 21,300sf open plan for corporate offices and full-service lunch room on the second floor. A new corporate anterior entrance will be added to an existing 65,000sf building; two areas are joined by a glass atrium with 32-foot clear height and shaded glass walls providing westerly views.
MEP process systems include utility matrix throughout the space for compressed gas, electric, and specific process gases.
Norwood Engineering is the civil engineering firm of record. William Jackson of William Jackson Associates, Inc. of Concord is SMB’s owner’s project manager
Several years in planning, this expansion will provide maximum build-out on the site. It is the sixth expansion in the last 50 years. The building envelope is a conventional steel building with membrane roof, generous ribbon and punch windows, a vertical metal sandwich panel façade, and new glass corporate entry.
