Ford helps companies cost-effectively expand with metal building additions.


As a leading manufacturer and supplier of cranes, Superior Crane produces everything from hoists and parts to complete crane systems, both large and small. As the company continued to grow, so did the need for a metal building addition. Ford worked with Houston-based Metallic Building Co. to add 10,830-sq.ft. of manufacturing space to the Waukesha site. The team’s careful planning allowed the new space to offer 40 inches of additional width by keeping the distance between the building columns and sister columns as tight as possible. This maintained strength and lifting capacity without making the building tighter. The project received an Award of Merit in the Metallic Building Company 2015 Design Build Awards
