Project(s) and Client Examples
“We felt we needed a design build company who could do everything in one step. What differentiated Focus for me was the fact that they listened to what we were saying and what our needs were.”
- Dr. Volker Schmitz, President
“They were very knowledgeable and easy to deal with. Everything we asked, everything we wanted to happen, Focus did a great job. Just sit down at the table with them, let them know what you want, what your expectations are, and let them go to work for you. I think they’ll do a great job.”

Lindsay Precast, North Carolina Facility
Construction of the Schmalz manufacturing facility in North Raleigh required not just the typical knowledge of construction in our area, but also an understanding of the construction desires and expectations of the German-owned company, and the ability to communicate differences between the two in a manner that bettered the overall project. Focus worked with Schmalz to design a master plan for the property that will make future expansions less intrusive on their functionality and save the company money.
- 30,000 SF initial construction
- Master-planned entire site
- Site-designed for future expansion of building
K-Flex USA in Youngsville, NC is one of the largest single-building projects Focus has undertaken to date. At 365,000 square feet--the size of three Sam’s Clubs--the K-Flex project was a massive build! As the business strategy for this particular location meant the owner did not wish to purchase the land directly, Focus was not only responsible for the construction, but also for finding K-Flex a financial partner who could buy the property, then lease the building back to K-Flex. Through our industry contacts, Focus was able to locate and secure exactly the partner K-Flex needed. Together with our real estate entity, Kima Commercial, the entire process was smooth, and the building became a reality in record time!
- 365,000 SF
- Connector building between existing and new structures
- Completed in under nine months
- Coordinated financing, land purchase, and construction
ATI Industrial Automation’s Phase V Expansion in Apex, North Carolina will be one of the most unique and high-tech facilities in the Triangle market. This design-build project consists of a new two-story, 70,000 SF building. The facility will house ATI’s executive offices, sales and support staff, engineering labs, and manufacturing operations. The project came as the result of ATI’s rapid growth, both in the US and abroad, and the need for an additional 275 employees. ATI’s Phase V Expansion will utilize the latest LED lighting technology, HVAC controls, and security devices. Likely the most unique aspect of ATI’s addition is the 3,000 SF rooftop amenity that will serve as a location for employee gatherings and celebrations. This promises to be an exciting project to watch as our incredible team of Focus staff and subcontractors work together to bring ATI’s expansion into reality!
- 70,000 SF
- Ultra high-tech design
- Unique 3,000 SF rooftop usage
