Hayden Beverage Building Renovation

Boise, ID

When Hayden Beverage Company, Idaho’s largest beer, wine, and premium non-alcoholic beverage distributor, wanted to renovate and expand their building during a global pandemic, they needed input from a trusted partner. When the proposed design included the expensive matching of the building’s existing roof framing, Hayden Beverage Company thought there had to be a better way. The answer turned out to be in the history of their building. Hayden Beverage acquired this building in 2016, which was previously RedBuilt’s legacy company headquarters.

The original warehouse had a less common design than today’s wood-framed structures. The construction team at Hansen-Rice originally planned to match the existing framing which resulted in a construction cost that exceeded budget. The project team found a solution that cut nearly half a million dollars out of the budget.   

By utilizing a beam supported by columns concealed within product shelves, the team was able to reduce the open-web truss span. The construction team achieved the same goal for half the price. Hayden Beverage added 55,000 square feet to the existing 70,000 feet of warehouse space, nearly doubling the facility’s square footage.
