LGE Design Build has recently completed the construction of a 44,000-square-foot building for METSO, the world’s leading industrial company in the mining and aggregates industries and in the flow control business.
The building is part of Metso’s service center network and provides a wide range of services primarily to mining and aggregate customers in the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. These services include field service and repair, spare and wear parts, and performance service solutions.
The new facility, 8223 E. Pecos Road in Mesa, includes a large service area that houses two, 60-ton bridge cranes as well as welding and machining bays. The bridge cranes enable METSO to service and repair large-scale mining equipment including grinding mills, crushers and screens. The facility, located on 10 acres, includes 50’ clear height ceilings.
“METSO represents a huge undertaking for LGE Design Build. From accommodating the 60-ton bridge cranes to the machining bays, we constructed a building that will enable METSO to efficiently continue its leadership role in the mining and aggregates industries,” said Dave Sellers, president of LGE Design Build.
The building provides office space for 65 employees and has the capacity to hold up to an additional 40 employees.
“This fully equipped repair and service center is part of a growing list of Metso service centers around the world – on six continents. It’s about making an investment in not only our future, but our customers’ future as well,” says Randall R. Reisinger, SVP, Services Business Line, Mining and Construction for Metso.
“We designed the project to make an architectural reference to the geology of the earth, depicting mineral layers in the design and the color scheme for the building,” said Sherm Cawley, president of Cawley Architects of Phoenix.
