“This new building in Countyline Corporate Park provides the unique combination of state-of-the-art industrial amenities within a business park setting.”

Ware Malcomb previously provided master planning services for the overall Countyline Corporate Park project. The firm has since provided architectural design services for five of the stand-alone buildings within the Countyline Corporate Park, including this 325,000 square foot facility for CGI Windows and Doors and a 473,000 square foot build-to-suit facility for KLX Aerospace Solutions.
