Uponor is a multinational corporation with its North American headquarters in Apple Valley, Minnesota. In Apple Valley, Uponor develops and manufactures proprietary extruded plastic tubing used in in-floor radiant heating systems and for residential plumbing applications.
Uponor selected PCL as its partner to assess multiple expansion scenarios from the perspective of cost and building performance. Ultimately, a series of major expansions took place, beginning with a 25,000-square-foot, two-story office to serve as its new headquarters. The expansion used Uponor’s signature in-floor heating system, along with a standard HVAC system.
Other projects included three new manufacturing bays collectively containing 54,000 square feet of production, packaging, and distribution floors. PCL also completed a second-level addition for a new 6,000-square-foot research, development, and product testing lab, as well as a main level renovation to accommodate a new training center and auditorium.
