Whitley’s building featured in AUTOMATED BUILDER



County government wanted a special looking building to fit in with Walla Walla, Washington's classic, turn-of-the-century downtown. No mean feat, considering the building would need to serve as the county's public safety center with plenty of bullet proof glass. The result, officials said, pleased everyone, and pleasantly surprised more than a few.

What officials got from Whitley Evergreen and Williams Scotsman, the distributor, was a modern two-story building with sufficient exterior architectural details to more than respect the surrounding neighborhood. The windows are probably the most striking design feature, each reaching two stories with radius tops and keystone caped trim. Each corner of the building is defined by "limestone" blocks reaching to the roof line. The walls are of stucco panel and the doors are oak. Gutter collector boxes add to the historic touches, as does the fypon trim at the roof line. That same trim additionally creates the look of a "widows walk" from a simple elevator tower.

Certainly, while the style is not strictly 1880s, so many details pay respect to the era that it fits comfortably among its surroundings. Local officials say they were very pleased with the support and creativity Williams Scotsman sales representative Breton Betz provided at every stop along the way.

And, not only are the employees proud to go to their new landmark building, but they talk about how comfortable the interior is. It was designed to provide plenty of natural light and solar warming through the huge windows. It feels airy and light inside.

Town officials were also very happy with the speed in which the building was assembled on site. Two days. Only two months later the building was occupied. That meant considerably less disruption of downtown activities and to the work of the sheriff and prosecutor.

The twenty - module building was constructed at the Whitley Evergreen plant in Marysville, Washington, one of the Whitley Manufacturing family of factories. But the same design could easily have been built at any of our factories. In all, the Walla Walla public safety facility totaled 15,984 square feet which local officials said saved them thousands each month in rent and significantly improved worker morale.

Whitley Evergreen markets its products in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming with five distributors in those states. The plant also provides limited product shipment to Alaska and Hawaii.

Whitley Evergreen's parent company, Whitley Manufacturing, located in South Whitley, Indiana, also builds similar high end products, shipping to most states east of the Mississippi. We also ship west into Colorado and Texas.
