Newington, NH – Jewett Construction Company, Inc. of Raymond has completed work on the new corporate headquarters of SIG SAUER, Inc. at 72 Pease Boulevard in Newington. The 57,000sf renovation and fit-up, designed by Nutec Corp. of York, Penn, included both exterior work as well as extensive interior renovations to provide for corporate offices and production facilities. All work was completed without disruption to the client’s daily business.
The project included repairing and refinishing the exterior EIFS, constructing a new exterior vestibule with black ACM, new sidewalks and landscaping. Interior renovations included selective demolition, the construction of a new, two-story foyer/reception area featuring the iconic SIG SAUER insignia, a glass-railed balcony, a fifty-foot gypsum and tile feature wall, and tile floor. A SIG SAUER product room was also completed, which displays a selection of the company’s firearms and accessories, as well as touch-screen electronics for viewing company videos. The building also includes production areas, a new, state-of-the art fitness room, locker rooms, meeting rooms, training rooms, classrooms and a catered employee cafeteria.
The executive offices are fitted with custom cherry woodwork and flooring of ceramic tile and carpet, off of which is a glass-enclosed, structural steel viewing mezzanine that overlooks the production area—one constructed by Jewett’s Metal Buildings and Steel Erectors division. Lighting throughout is a combination of recessed and LED fixtures.
“Our firm is proud to have been chosen to undertake the construction of the SIG SAUER headquarters,” says Craig Jewett, president of Jewett Construction. “This project is the second we’ve done in conjunction with Nutec Facilities Corp, and is the culmination of a 10 year working relationship between our firm and SIG SAUER which began with a warehouse addition in 2003.”
Other projects JCCI has completed for the company include a ground-up, new Pro Shop located at SIG SAUER Academy in Epping, a new Quality Control Room and exterior renovation to the Academy itself, office renovations, a warehouse mezzanine, a walkway renovation, and a testing range expansion.
