New facility to feature administrative offices, as well as a warehouse, gym, kitchen, 573-square foot humidor and more.
Smoker Friendly is set to officially break ground on the build of its new corporate headquarters on March 1 at 11 a.m.
Smoker Friendly International is a family-owned cigarette and tobacco store retailer based in Boulder, Colo. The new headquarters will be located in the Gunbarrel Technical Center, at 6790 Winchester Circle. The 19,500-square-foot structure will be built on a 2.21-acre parcel of land and will contain house administrative offices for Smoker Friendly International, The Cigarette Store Corp. and Gasamat Oil Corp. of Colorado.
The new headquarters also is set to feature a 3,000-square-foot warehouse, 573-square-foot humidor, a gym and workout facility, kitchen, lounge and large patio for hosting parties and events.
The architect for the project is RVP Architecture PC of Boulder. The general contractor is Longmont-based Golden Triangle Construction Inc.
The company was nearing the end of its five-year lease at 5303 Spine Road and running into space limitations in its warehouse and office and deemed it necessary to build a space that is custom tailored to the company’s needs and growing presence in the marketplace. This growth has allowed the company to post some of its best numbers during the past three years.
“We really felt that the market was ripe to buy a piece of land and design a building that is custom-built to suit our needs,” said Terry Gallagher Jr., president of Smoker Friendly International.
