The Virtual Building Program was designed to help companies get product to customers faster.
KEDC has invested in two pre-designed buildings as part of the Program. Both building options would allow the company to build according to its own efficiencies while reducing time of construction to allow for a more rapid opening schedule. Lots in Synergy Park are available for construction.
One of the pre-designed buildings is a 53,000 SF manufacturing facility with a 25' ceiling. Construction documents are available for this facility, saving three to four months in construction time compared to other greenfield sites.
The Program has already been utilized by WAGNERTUNING, a German-based high-end automotive parts manufacturer. Contractors estimate this building will cost approximately $6 million, but those estimates are subject change depending on the construction timeline. KEDC has worked with local and regional developers on behalf of construction clients with experience in Kilgore.
The other pre-designed building is a 105,000 SF distribution/multi-use facility with a 32' ceiling. Design documents are available for this building, saving a company two to three months in construction time compared to other greenfield sites.
