Central Utility Plant (CUP) – Structural & Architectural Package
MULE worked with a large Engineering Firm to build a new office complex with three separate buildings for a large Aerospace Contractor on the east coast. This new facility provides a new Center of Excellence in the area, providing space for an additional 1,900 personnel in the Melbourne area. MULE’s portion of this project was the shell for the 12700 sf Central Utility Plant, CUP.
