Mohagen Hansen provided site planning and architectural design services for Cybex International’s 150,000 SF facility expansion in Owatonna, MN. Cybex International and Life Fitness, owned by parent company Brunswick Corporation, manufactures high-end exercise equipment that is shipped globally. The expansion allowed Cybex to install two new paint lines and increase space for welding, assembly, and storage – adding over 100 employees to their operations. Also included was a new breakroom, outdoor patio, and restrooms.
Understanding existing conditions was key to the design process, and we spent a lot of time analyzing the company’s operations and what could be done to improve work flow. Many steps were taken to ensure the building remain as eco-friendly as possible, while being a comfortable and efficient place to work. Mohagen Hansen designed the facility to maximize efficiency and space, while creating options for future expansion.
