Work on a $850,000, nearly 10,000-square-foot warehouse has begun in Hillyard in northeast Spokane, with excavation and concrete footings poured last week.
The building will be home to Pro Builders General Contractors, which supplies and installs pre-engineered steel buildings that provide large interior spaces without interior columns.
Chad McDonald, who owns the business with his father, Terry, said the company’s buildings are largely used for manufacturing and warehousing, but he said airplane hangars are also an example of the type of structure they build.
The Spokane-based company has supplied a number of buildings locally, notably for Baker Construction on projects for Avista Corp.
Pro Builders was the general contractor on the 14,000-square-foot Lilac Bloomsday Headquarters, 1414 N. Belt St., in Spokane’s West Central neighborhood just south of Maxwell Avenue.
The company did its own general contracting on the new warehouse. The design was done by South Henry Studio, of Spokane. Structural engineering was done by TD&H Engineering, also of Spokane.
