Deer Park, WA – Building envelope industry rainscreen leader Knight Wall Systems today announced it has broken ground on a new 20,000 square-foot fabrication plant and headquarters in eastern Washington, according to company president Doug Knight.
Located near the Deer Park Airport, the new facility will also include 4,500 square feet of offices and conference room space for Knight’s executive team.
“We have had steady and significant growth since we launched our first product in 2010,” Knight said. “This new plant will accommodate our expansion now and provide flexibility for further growth down the line.”
Knight’s new facility, which will be constructed in a contemporary industrial design, will feature its award-winning CI® System rainscreen on the exterior, with a façade of ACM and terracotta panels attached. Inside the building, which will be equipped with a display wall with myriad cladding options compatible with Knight products, the company will house its roll-forming operation and all other fabrication equipment currently used to manufacture its drop-in rainscreen solutions.
The Knight facility will be built to surpass Washington State energy code requirements, Knight said, with high-performance continuous insulation throughout and LED lighting. The company expects to complete construction in October of this year. The building was designed by Watson & Herres LLC, Spokane Valley, WA; and will be built by Kilgore Construction Inc., Spokane, WA.

An Environmental Building News’ “Top-10 Green Building Product,” a Metal Construction magazine’s Readers’ Choice award-winner, and a two-time recipient of Architectural Record’s Record Products designations, Knight’s patented “drop-in” rainscreen and thermal isolation technologies have set new standards for building façades throughout North America.
