Collierville is adding another corporate headquarters with the new MCR Safety facility in Schilling Farms.
The new corporate home for MCR is approximately 45,000 square feet and is estimated to cost $6 million.
Designed by Renaissance Group, the facility includes training facilities, showrooms for their product lines and a conference center. General contractor on the project is Linkous Construction, and it is anticipated that the headquarters will accommodate about 180 employees.
The design also includes 100 percent backup generation which supports their IT/computer center. Architect Sal Feraci of the Renaissance Group indicates that the facility will be a model of sustainability with energy efficiency exceeding those outlined in the City of Collierville guidelines.
