The building includes 9,400 square feet of office area on the first floor and 2,950 square feet of office area on the mezzanine level. Included in the office space is a detailing school with two vehicle bays. The remainder of the building is comprised of both open warehouse for storage and manufacturing space that also supports RUPES’s global operations.
