Spokane Metals is relocating its operations from Airway Heights to Spokane Valley.
The steel fabrication company is building a $2.4 million facility at 4100 N. Barker Road in Spokane Valley’s growing northeast industrial area.
Plans call for a two-story, 22,588-square-foot building, according to permits filed with the city.
Spokane-based Labar Architecture Inc. is designing the project. Davenport-based Halme Builders is the project contractor.
BR Land Group LLC purchased the more than 7-acre site for $223,000 in 2017.
Spokane Metals Manager Vlad Kuchin said the new facility is more than 10,000 square feet larger than the leased building in Airway Heights currently occupied by the company.
Kuchin said most of the company’s employees live in Spokane Valley and that was a factor in the decision to relocate.
Construction is expected to be completed by next year.
