Northern Gear

Briohn designed and constructed this 96,000 SF manufacturing facility for Northern Gear, a third generation gear manufacturer and precision machined component supplier. Since 1951, Northern Gear has worked with internationally known equipment and component manufacturers to meet their exact design specifications in a wide variety of high-tech gear and precision machining applications.

To allow for a future 44,000 SF expansion of this new facility, the buildable area was maximized through the use of engineered retaining walls, and over 800-feet of 9-foot diameter pipe was installed for an underground storm-water retention system.

The pre-cast concrete industrial building includes:

  • Fully air conditioned machine shop
  • An air rotation system to improve indoor air quality
  • Two story office space with a dramatic lobby and second floor training room
  • Inspection office
  • Compressor/equipment room
