This 60,000 square foot addition to the New Belgium Brewing Headquarters sought to provide the company’s employees with an enhanced working atmosphere while also improving the experience of a visitor to the on-site tasting room. The solution was a modern, two-story steel-structured addition, visibly aligned with the design of the existing brewery facilities. The design utilized composite steel floor framing with open-web joist roof framing. The lateral resisting system consists of a combination of braced frames and moment frames.
