Construction Progress Update: Part 2

It’s another beautiful (but chilly) day at Royal Recognition! This week, crews created the framework for our new loading dock — digging out what will soon become an additional loading bay, carving out a section of the ground large enough for trucks to back into, framing the garage door sized hole in with cinder block and more.

Construction equipment chips away at the soil next to the building while crews make sure the ground stays level.

It’s fascinating to watch the changes taking place each day, including what is going on inside the warehouse. The workers have built an entire insulated enclosure (which you can see in the photo above) to protect against the elements during the brisk Wisconsin winters. The wood planks are used as “doors” when crews are done working for the day.

Next week, additional blacktop will be torn up and gravel laid to make way for the sloped concrete loading bay. Watch for more photos next week!

Construction has Begun!

Last week crews started digging and demolishing a portion of the Royal Recognition warehouse to make room for bigger and better things. We’ve hired the best in the business, MSI General Contractors, to help us integrate the existing space with our vision for the future.

The first phase of the project is a 35,000 square foot warehouse expansion including adding an additional loading bay to alleviate congestion on our busiest days.

The second phase will come with a large office expansion making room for more desks, work spaces and most importantly–Recognition Professionals to keep up with our growing client base.
