Apogee recently held an open house to celebrate our 20th anniversary and the completion of our expansion project that tripled the size of our headquarters. Joining us on May 10th, 2016 were many great university colleagues, customers, partners, neighbors, construction workers, and family members. After a brief speech by company president, Dr. Bruce Bugbee, the staff provided tours of the new facility including our expanded ESD-protected production area, an improved loading and shipping area, a machine-shop, a climate-controlled calibration lab, a photo/video studio, several engineering offices, a beautiful employee break room, a state-of-the-art classroom, and a museum of antique weather instruments.
The new facility features a highly-efficient design with large windows to utilize natural light, enhanced insulation, radiant floor heat, and louvered architectural awnings that are precisely angled at 22° to provide shade in the summer and allow the sun to pass through in winter. Along the front of the building, 17 new solar PV panels were added in a continuous arc to blend with the style of the facade. To monitor the many new building control systems, several Apogee sensors were installed, including infrared radiometers, thermistors, and pyranometers.
Apogee has come a long way since our beginning at Bruce Bugbee’s kitchen table.
