Starting in 2012, SEW-Eurodrive, a global leader in power transmission products and services, began planning a $20-million expansion for their Lyman, SC campus, home to the company’s U.S. corporate headquarters. This expansion included a 150,000-square-foot warehouse structure, as well as a 40,000-square-foot corporate office space. The challenge was to identify a construction method that could meet the aesthetic, functional, timeline, and budgetary requirements of the project. That’s when Tindall was called in to deliver the perfect precast solution.

The SEW-Eurodrive Lyman campus structures were required to meet strict design criteria while remaining within budget. Precast concrete offered the perfect combination of aesthetic versatility, speed, performance, and cost-effectiveness. To bring these structures to life, Tindall worked directly with SEW-Eurodrive and McMillan Pazdan Smith Architecture to provide insulated precast wall panels with unique exterior finishes that checked all the right boxes.
Since the completion of the two original projects in 2012, Tindall has had the opportunity to support SEW-Eurodrive with additional expansions of both their Lyman and Wellford campuses. These expansions included a training and fitness center building in 2015, the Das Boot assembly building in 2019, the Maxolution structure in 2019, and a warehouse at the Lyman campus in late 2022.
By working closely with both the customer and architect, Tindall was able to provide a wide range of architectural finishes that visually distinguished each structure while creating a consistent aesthetic across both campuses. To achieve this, Tindall leveraged colored concrete, formliners, and multiple levels of sandblast textures.
