North American home office and warehouse complex for international Food Equipment company. FRANKE Foodservice Systems is the worldwide leader in providing equipment solutions and project management for quick service restaurant chains and retailers. The project consists of a new corporate office and warehouse complex that is situated on approximately 40 acres along Highway 41 near the Smyrna airport.

The office complex includes an Employee Care Clinic, Fitness Center, and Cafeteria, as well as a Tech and Lab Center for testing and demonstrating the Owner’s products. The warehouse is a re-supply distribution point for the Owner’s products. There are 19 loading / receiving docks. A 38’ clear working height serves the Owner's warehouse requirements which are comprised of an automated warehouse shipping system and product storage. The buildings were designed for future expansion as the company continues to grow and expand.
The buildings are Silver LEED™ Certified with the skin of the office building consisting of insulated aluminum panels, energy efficient glass curtain wall, and wood accent panels. The roof of each facility has an energy saving TPO roof membrane system that reflects most of the direct sunlight away from the building. Energy efficient plenum access flooring is used throughout the majority of the office facility, allowing employees to control their individual environments.
