Daniel Defense

Project Details

Daniel Defense, a leader in the firearms community, contracted with Evans on the design-build for their headquarters and manufacturing facility.  Daniel Defense provides premium small arms solutions to the United States Special Operations Command, the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense and the general public and have been featured in national publications for their exceptional quality and tremendous growth.

The headquarters and manufacturing facility consist of 305,546 sf of space including 237,055 sf of conditioned manufacturing space with two 5-ton cranes and isolated thickened slabs to accommodate specialized hammer forge equipment. The facility also features a 68,491 sf two-story, Class A, office space with high-quality finishes throughout that serve the Daniel Defense leadership, administrative and engineering staff. The exterior walls of the office and the walls separating the office and manufacturing floor are constructed with storefront windows offering natural light and views to the manufacturing floor. The building is constructed with removable tilt-panel walls to accommodate future expansion.

The manufacturing floor is serviced with a compressed air system comprised of four high capacity Ingersoll Rand compressors integrated with a system of dryers and receivers to feed an 8” loop system surrounding the entire production floor.  Branch lines feed compressed air to eight independent manufacturing cells where various CNC and machining equipment produce high precision product.  A separate 2000-gallon tank provides added volume to elevate variances experienced in a blast and paint process.
