Koehn Building Systems worked with the property owners to bring their ideas to reality. This included exterior elevation drawings and interior floor plan. All design work was completed in-house by Koehn Building Systems.
Cook Auction Company is a family-owned business dating back to 1958. In the early days, their business included a Massey Ferguson dealership. In the 1960’s, they held an auction to liquidate their excess inventory. Due to the success of that first auction, an annual inventory auction was held, and a tradition was born that helped shape the business to what it is today. The Cook Auction Company is now widely known with multiple locations.
In 2012, the auction and parts business split. As they grew it was no longer feasible to function within the same facility. As a result, in 2014, the Cook family and Koehn Building Systems signed a contract on the office/drive through auction building.
With the new structure being built, amidst the equipment parking area being actively used and ongoing sales every month, there was some working together to keep the new project moving forward and accommodating the activity around sale days.
The Cooks were looking for a unique entry to their facility. Koehn Building System responded with a high ceiling in center of entry with galvalume corrugated metal ceiling, pendant hung lights, and wood trim. This effectively matched the building with the agricultural theme of the business.
Every aspect of the business was thought through extensively with the Cook’s. Aspects considered included how many people would be in the front office at end of sale day to customers checking a tractor in before sale day. We even created a special monitor room right by check-in so electronic equipment was kept safe and dry during inclement weather. With the winning combination of great attention to the detail by the Cooks and Koehn Building Systems’ expertise, we were able to design a building that functions well for all aspects of the Cook Auction Company’s operations.
