In the fall of 2017, Napoleon Products had a choice to make.

They could solve their office space problems in Kentucky by replacing an existing drywall building they’d outgrown with another conventional buildout, but that would require a permanent foundation and lots of building permits.

Or they could go with a Starrco pre-engineered modular building. As a modular structure, it needed no foundation, fewer permits and it could be built in days rather than weeks. They chose Starrco.

As part of the first phase, they decided to invest in a load-bearing roof deck to be used for heavy-duty storage until later this summer when they will add a second level for more office space. In addition, plans are being discussed to add a Starrco building at their manufacturing and distribution center.

Everyone who watched phase one of the project go from loading dock to finished building was impressed with the speed of install and the quality of the finished product.

Building Program

Napoleon Products decided to build in two phases.

  • Phase 1: The ground floor, which is 56 by 16 feet, has a large conference room and an open plan area for their shipping office staff.
  • Phase 2: They plan to add a second floor within 2-3 months. It will have offices and a training room where employees can do forklift and safety classes.

Fast Installation

As soon as the construction drawings were signed off, the manufacturing began. Every part was cut to size and packed for shipping. Within weeks, the materials arrived at Napoleon Products’ dock, ready for Rick Ellis and his installation crew to start work.

“They had the outer structure and the windows done in seven hours. The finished product is beautiful. It surpassed my expectations.”

Fixtures & Features

The company decided to order Starrco’s standard ADA lever door hardware and light fixtures to keep costs down. But, with Starrco, standard does not mean compromising quality.

“I couldn’t imagine upgrading everything. That would be unbelievable. I wouldn’t want to leave.”
