Northborough, MA – Maugel Architects announced the completion of the 40,000sf warehouse addition for NewCorr Packaging located in Northborough. With the challenge of a tight and steep site, Maugel worked closely with civil and structural engineers to maximize the addition footprint and provide additional loading docks to meet daily truck volume.
The project team included the engineering team of TF Moran; WDA Design Group; Vlachos Associates; owner’s rep, M. David Company; and general contractor, F.W. Madigan Company.
Particular attention was paid to maximizing storage for the large paper rolls while designing safe walking and forklift aisles for employees. High humidity levels generated by the manufacturing process were a major design concern. To meet the challenge, Maugel worked closely with NewCorr and the engineering team to design systems and a final layout that successfully controlled humidity throughout the warehouse.
Renovations to the front entry, lobby, restrooms, and office area modernized the spaces and provided full accessibility for NewCorr’s employees and visitors.
“Expanding and renovating a manufacturing facility while it continues to operate brings many challenges. From the start, Maugel’s project approach was exceptional,” said Rhett Bartlett, VP & GM at NewCorr Packaging.
“Maugel incorporated our goals, developed a strong plan, and limited costly changes, overruns, and interruptions. The team did an excellent job – their expertise and commitment ensured a successful project. We are very happy with the result and with our choice of Maugel as our architectural firm,” added Bartlett.
