Minneapolis, MN: June 6th, 2018 – C.M. Architecture (CMA), architect of record for SJE, a leading water/wastewater controls solutions provider, is pleased to announce that construction is underway on the new SJE manufacturing facility in Ashland, Ohio.
Driven by the increasing demand for smart solutions to today’s growing environmental challenges, SJE acquired eight acres in the Ashland Business Park and selected CMA to design a state-of-the-art, 51,000 sq. ft. facility with manufacturing production areas on one level for optimum efficiency and future growth. Built by local general contractor Simonson Construction Services, the project is on track to be completed by the end of December 2018.
“We’re proud to be working with SJE on this exciting new project,” said Patrick G. Blees, principal of CMA. “In the same way that SJE provides custom solutions to meet their clients’ environmental needs, our team of architects, designers and engineers collaborated with SJE to design a custom facility that drives efficiency and reduces time-to-market while providing room for expansion—and a great place for employees to work!”
“This dynamic new building is the culmination of several years of planning,” said Dave Thomas, President & CEO of SJE. “As our strategic design partner, CMA’s integrated team of architects, designers and engineers was instrumental in helping us plan, design and execute on our vision of providing our employee owners a great place to work, a facility to better serve our customers, and strengthen our commitment to the city of Ashland.”
