MEBANE — Prescient, a fully integrated and patented design, engineering, manufacturing and installation solution for the construction industry, is moving the company’s headquarters from Arvada, Colorado to Durham, North Carolina and opening a second manufacturing facility in nearby Mebane.
The North Carolina facility will serve clients east of the Mississippi River, while the Colorado facility will continue to serve clients in the western U.S. The company hosted a grand opening for the new Mebane facility last week with Gov. Roy Cooper.
Prescient’s Mebane plant began production in May and expects to eventually employ more than 200 designers, architects, project managers, installers and other employees. The Mebane facility doubles the company’s total annual capacity to nearly 11 million square feet.
The headquarters move allows Prescient to bring design, manufacturing and other business operations to the North Carolina Commerce Park, a 1,200-acre business property developed collaboratively by Alamance County with the towns of Graham and Mebane.
“We are witnessing significant growth, having doubled our revenue each year since 2013. Relocating our headquarters will allow us to expand our national footprint and better accommodate customers along the East Coast, from Maine to Miami,” said Satyen Patel, chairman and former CEO of Prescient. “While our expanded 120,000-square-foot facility in Colorado will continue to serve customers west of the Mississippi River, we believe that North Carolina, with its commitment to growing a knowledge-based, innovation-driven economy, is a perfect fit with Prescient’s mission.”
“The company provides the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry with an integrated process from design to the finished product. Prescient’s design platform seeks to offer a faster, greener and more cost-effective alternative than conventional building structures and is ideally suited for multi-unit mid-rise projects, including apartments, student housing, hotels and senior living. The company has projects completed or underway throughout the country in Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Texas.”
“I am proud to welcome Prescient to North Carolina. Prescient joins a growing list of innovative companies attracted to our state’s exceptional talent and business climate,” said North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper. “North Carolina is a thriving place to live and do business thanks to our skilled workforce, outstanding universities and community colleges, and strong leadership in technology and manufacturing.”
The first project coming out of the new Alamance County facility will be Northgate, an eight-level, 177,267 square-foot student housing facility in College Station, Texas.
