Project Detail

With more than 12,000 products in its inventory, Northern Tool & Equipment Company is billed as "the ultimate source of tools and equipment." For more than 20 years, the company has marketed a wide range of tools, power equipment and accessories to individuals and businesses, including automotive shops, grounds maintenance professionals, and contractors. Northern Tool reaches its customers worldwide through mail order catalogs and its e-commerce website at northerntool.com. Headquartered in Burnsville, MN, this dynamic company also has more than 40 retail stores in ten U.S. states.

The latest addition to their list of retail stores is a newly constructed 25,000 SF building in Grand Prairie, Texas. Construction for this new store began on February 16, 2004, with the Certificate of Occupancy (CO) issued on June 9. Bob Moore Construction was the general contractor for this new building, working with architect JKLA, Inc. out of Mission, KS. The property owner is Centdev Properties in Cornelius, NC.

The new store features a large open area with shelving for thousands of products. A loading dock in the rear of the building provides for easy delivery of new product shipments. The building also houses several administrative offices, a maintenance facility and an employee break room. The store is finished in the company's blue and white color scheme, with a large decorative façade at the front. A fenced, outdoor equipment yard houses larger pieces of equipment to the side of the store.

  • I'm very impressed with the building. Everything looks excellent. The front façade really looks great. We've already received several comments on it. The schedule was very important to us. (Senior Project Manager) Curt Hellen did an excellent job of working with the subcontractors, coordinating and organizing everything to work together and get it done on time.

  • This project was an experiment for us. Instead of using the normal submittal process, we got everyone together - Northern Tool, the subcontractors, Bob Moore - and had a submittal party. . . That worked very well, having everyone together, working through it very quickly. This was also the first time we've used tiltwall construction on a Northern Tool project. I'm happy with how well it worked, and how fast it was. It was amazing how quickly the building went up. I was impressed with how Curt Hellen managed the process and coordinated with everyone. Everyone at Bob Moore was very professional.
