Red Nose Day - May 26, 2016

May 26, 2016 had two separate but meaningful topics for Strickland Construction.

One, our Company has decided each division would prepare a meal and serve for the Whole Company, on a monthly basis. This time it was the Concrete Division who prepared and served Lunch for everyone. The teamwork was great in preparation, quality and cleanup!

The food was good, we gave the Concrete crew an “A”

This gives us another chance to sit down , have a short conversation with everyone And show them how they are appreciated.

Two, Red Nose Day – turned out to be a great opportunity for Strickland Construction To participate in donating to a great cause. Who doesn’t like to put on a red nose, Look a little funny and have a Company photo taken? Everyone joined in the fun!

So, May 26, 2016, turned out to be another Fun Day at Strickland Construction.


Sparhawk Laboratories, Inc.

Founded in 1989 and located in Lenexa Kansas, Sparhawk Labs manufactures and distributes a full range of veterinary pharmaceuticals. With continued growth over the past twenty seven years Sparhawk had out grown their current 50,000 sq ft manufacturing facility and their 23,000 sq ft distribution center. With expansion plans in their future they contacted Strickland Construction Co. to design and construct an addition to their current building which would not only combine their operation back under one roof but also leave room for expansion.

The new addition includes over 84,000 sq ft of FDA grade fully climate controlled warehouse, packaging, warehouse operations offices, restrooms, locker rooms and break room. The building shell is full height, load bearing, insulated, exposed aggregate concrete tilt wall panels cast on site with steel girder and bar joist supporting the metal deck and insulated TPO roof system.

In additional to the warehouse space is 15,000 sq ft of offices, training rooms and conference rooms on two levels. The upper level lobby overlooks the elegant entry and curved stair highlighted by the natural light from the full height curved glass exterior wall.

Not only were the owner’s and manager’s offices upgraded to higher quality finish, because of the clientele they attract from all over the world, the owners elected to upgrade the public areas such as, Restrooms, Conference rooms and Lobby to Pharmaceutical Elegance standards, designed by KHL Design Studio, Lee’s Summit, Mo.

The result from all the professionals involved is a very attractive, energy efficient, durable, low maintenance facility that will meet the customer’s needs for years to come.

Strickland Construction would like to thank the Owners, Architects, Engineers, Subcontractors and all Employees for a job well done, that we can be very proud of for years to come.
