The project included the construction of a pre-engineered one-story structure consisting of approximately 7,500 square feet. The exterior is a combination of metal panels and brick veneer. There is an entry canopy constructed of structural steel with a translucent panel material roof. The space is a shell and included minimal electrical and plumbing rough-ins.
This building is an attempt by the local municipality to spur growth in what was a blighted area. The basis of the design was to create a warehouse/ office space that was more upscale than traditional warehouse space. By providing the mixture of materials, two goals were accomplished; one being providing an aesthetically interesting façade and entrance. Secondly it addressed the current energy code requirements that are required and have posed challenges for the use of pre-engineered building as it relates to insulation requirements.
