Sioux Falls, SD
30,500 sf of new construction divided between a warehouse and office space
The new Midco structure in northwest Sioux Falls will serve a dual purpose for the company that provides high-speed internet, cable television, home phone service, and home automation and security options. The technical operations office and warehouse will be used by Midco employees, not as a customer service center. All Midco employees will benefit from meeting/training facilities that will host internal gatherings from many facilities throughout the area.
The company’s Technical Operations currently is located in leased spaces, which provided some areas suitable for the intended purposes and other areas that were less than optimum for their needs. In designing the new structure, TSP spoke with users and administration to determine what worked and what needed improvement, then designed the space around those goals. What Midco staff will end up with is a more effective way to work, one that increases efficiency.
The warehouse will be used for multiple services, including storage for Midco Sports Network’s large trailers used in reporting from the field. One of the unique aspects of the design is that it will provide a good interface between the office and warehouse functions.
The office portion of the building is a traditional construction with a steel structure and masonry exterior and metal panels as accents. The warehouse is a pre-engineered metal building with treatments similar to those of the office space to tie the different portions of the building into a unified whole.
