Simms Fishing Products Corporate Headquarters & Expansion


Our teams constructed the corporate headquarters for Simms Fishing Products—a national fishing supply brand headquartered in Bozeman, MT dedicated to making the pastime available to everyone. The 60,000 square-foot facility is home to corporate office space, a supply warehouse, and a production facility which represents the life and quality of the work performed by Simms and its employees. The modernly industrial building showcases the versatility and lifeblood of the brand itself—“You only have one life, fish it well.”

A few years after the completion of the corporate headquarters, Simms asked us to construct a 14,000 square-foot steel-framed expansion to the facility.

PROJECT SIZE

84,290 sq ft

PROJECT LOCATION

Bozeman, Montana

PROJECT DURATION

16 months

Challenge Accepted

Big-D Signature was challenged to transform a working manufacturing facility into a practical corporate headquarters that would house office space, daily warehouse operations, and manufacturing of Simms Fishing Products. The goal was to create a cohesive building with a modern-industrial feel that could operate efficiently for everyone under one roof. The building is also currently the largest solar photovoltaic project in the Gallatin Valley. In addition, the new facility utilizes sustainable features such as motion sensors and energy efficient lighting.

Unprecedented Growth

A few years after the project was complete, both the Bozeman community and Simms experienced unprecedented growth—creating the need for Simms to expand its facility by an additional 14,000 square-feet. The expansion features a three-story steel-framed extension to the existing headquarters and includes a production warehouse, extra offices, and a showroom for dealer partners. Crews constructed the additional space using concrete slabs and membrane roofing.
