Construction crews broke ground last Wednesday for the new Spectrum Brands building on Deming Way, just west of the Beltline and north of Discovery Drive, in Middleton.

Workers are preparing the site and erecting erosion control barriers. Later this month, they'll start digging the foundation, said John K. Livesey, whose firm, Livesey Co., will own the four-story, 210,000-square-foot building. It is scheduled to be completed by Aug. 30, 2013.

Cost of the project will top $25 million, Livesey said.

Spectrum Brands announced in January that it would move from its longtime quarters in Madison at 601 Rayovac Drive.

Chief executive Dave Lumley has said a $4 million forgivable state loan helped him decide to keep the company's world headquarters, technology center, and Rayovac and Remington headquarters in Dane County and not move some of those offices to Florida.
