East Lampeter Township-based High Construction Co. has been awarded a $2.5 million contract to transform a 35,000-square-foot vacant building in Mount Joy Township into a much larger retail facility and firing range for Trop Elite Equipment.
Trop, which is based in Mount Joy Township, will move from 709 Cloverleaf Road to 910 N. Hanover St. Its current facility is about 8,000 square feet, said Kris Hurley, director of operations.
Demolition of the existing interior space will begin this month. An August opening of the retail space is planned, according to a company news release. The remaining construction will wrap up by the end of the year, according to High.
The indoor firing range — complete with environmentally friendly air-filtration and Savage systems — will feature 12 shooting lanes. Trop will offer a membership club.
The facility also will house a gunsmith area, gaming room attached to the retail store, kitchen, espresso bar and lounge with a fireplace, a gym and fitness area and administrative offices.
Chambers & Associates, based in Manheim, designed the facility.
