More than a century old, ITT Flygt, a division of ITT Water & Wastewater, is an industry leader in submersible pumps, mixers, and mechanical aeration equipment that are used in environments ranging from water and wastewater treatment, raw water supply, abrasive or contaminated industrial processes to mining and construction as well as irrigation. Coupled with efforts to consolidate two Cincinnati-area locations with expiring leases under one roof and trickling ARRA stimulus funds increasing municipal infrastructure projects, Flygt's corporate office pushed full steam to deliver a fully equipped facility capable of handling current and foreseeable rigor to their Milford, OH branch staff.

The 17,000-square-foot light industrial facility, situated on more than five acres, encountered existing and seasonal demands prior to breaking ground on the new structure. A local design/build company, DER Development Company LLC, was chosen as an expert firm capable of wielding local jurisdictions and construction markets necessary to provide a completed product ready for occupancy by late summer of 2009. Upon commencing demolition of three existing structures in January 2009, DER moved swiftly into the design development phase of the project drawings with consulting designers.

The building was comprised of approximately 4,819 square feet of administrative office space while allowing 12,172 square feet of shop space. The environmentally sensitive ITT encouraged fundamental green design best management practices which included a low-slope "cool roof," per the Solar Reflectance Index rating, and one and one-half acres of concrete pavement; both positive contributors to the lessening of the "heat island effect." Additionally, concrete foundations from the three razed structures were crushed onsite into aggregate and used as base material underneath site pavement. A 5-foot band of translucent panels running the perimeter of the 19-foot eave in the shop and a low emissivity coating on storefront glass, situated on the north side of the structure, provided passive natural lighting. Energy efficient, high-bay T5 fluorescent fixtures were the chosen shop luminaries.

The shop was also outfitted with a 12.5 ton twin hoist top running crane that eased handling concerns with the cumbersome pumps Flygt manufacturers and services. The crane runway beams were integrated into the structural design of the pre-engineered metal building. Four one-ton jib cranes added auxiliary lifting capacity for smaller workstations. A 27-x 100-foot wash bay with a heated pressure washer provided equipment cleaning facilities for the service team. Other amenities included a service manager's office, showers and changing space with lockers.

Topping out this functional building, an expansive five acre site was prepared for Flygt providing acres of aggregate and concrete surfaced staging area, fully fenced for security and buffering.
