Sigma Contracting, Inc., celebrating its 35th anniversary, converted a distribution center into a manufacturing facility for Katerra, a technology-driven offsite construction company.
The $7.9 million project at 624 N. 44th Ave., in Phoenix consists of 200,000 SF of manufacturing area and 40,000 SF of office space for Katerra’s design team. The manufacturing side is a single story with 28-foot clear height. The office portion is two stories.
Katerra, headquartered in Menlo Park, California, manufactures large building components off-site, particularly for the multi-family industry. It can fabricate an entire wall (including windows) off-site for final assembly at a construction site. The technique allows for lower cost and higher-quality finishes.
