Kumho Tire USA, Inc.

McDonough, Georgia

Wakefield Beasley & Associates designed Kumho Tire USA, Inc's., build-to-suit distribution facility in the Interstate South Industrial Park in McDonough. The facility is approximately 410,500 square feet including 3,500 square feet of office space. To emulate the wing motif of the new logo, the owner wanted the entry to the new facility to incorporate similar sweeping lines. The corner entry is crowned by two 103,000-pound panels that meet in a V, and the open spaces are filled with reflective blue glass. The cool tone of the colors chosen for the panels offsets the building’s red wing-like light fixture. An aluminum awning completes the unorthodox entry design, which has already earned landmark status in the city of McDonough, Georgia.
