NDOVER, NJ —Located on a 3,000 acre estate in Andover, the elegant Recreational Winner of Excellence & 2012 MBCEA Building of the Year Hance Construction’s Hudson Guild Farm project honored A

white barn-style buildings with classic eave and gable design and oversized cupolas to blend with the spectacular country setting. But unlike traditional barn construc- tion, the Hudson Farm buildings use the Butler Manufacturing Widespan™ steel construction system, combining the practical- ity of a rigid frame with almost unlimited design flexibility—a flexibility that allowed the team at Hance Construction to accom- modate an elevated shop space for farm vehicle maintenance above a gun smith shop where priceless antique firearm repair and custom gun manufacturing can easily be performed. “We are thrilled with the new facilities,” says Steve Polanish, Manager of Hudson Farm. The exclusive Hunt Club also emphasizes sustainability from start to finish. Two farm buildings were demolished to make way for the new structures with all the metal and wood from the previous buildings recycled. The main club building features a solar power array, day lighting through the use of high efficiency window systems, as well as 9.5 inches of insulation in the roof and 6.5 inches of insula- tion in the walls. The Hudson Farm project is a stunning example of the caliber of work Hance Construction has long been known for. Their expertise with metal-frame construction extends to building the Butler Building for the 87,908 s/f practice facility housing the 2008 and 2012 Super Bowl Champion, New York Giants, which was completed in 2008. Hance Construction has been a Butler Builder® since 2002, a designation that ensures their place as a provider of premier pre-engineered metal building systems for the greater New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania areas. Looking to the future, Art Hance predicts that metal build- ing systems will dominate the automobile dealer marker. He also believes they will give developers an advantage by allowing them to take on more complex project than they ever would have been able to tackle before. Hance’s relationship with Butler has resulted in numerous award- winning projects including the New Station Park Recreation Com- plex in Sparta, NJ, honored as the “Favorite/Most Unusual General Contracting Project” by the Mid- Atlantic Real Estate Journal in its Best of 2011 Spotlight. And of course, the exceptional Hudson Farm project, 2012 MB- CEA Building of the Year. ■
