Proj Overview

Project Overview

Marking an entry to a corporate campus, this facility centralizes a number of functions and strives to redefine the company standard in efficiency and sustainability. The project’s extremely tight schedule dictated the use of architectural precast concrete panels in order to take advantage of its straightforward modularity, early start to shop drawings, quality control concerns, and speed of erection.
Interplay of ribbed and smooth panels was utilized to break down the visual mass of such a large project, adding significant visual interest to all of the facility’s facades.

Precast Solution

The ability to emulate the color and texture of the existing campus’s masonry buildings freed the design team to explore the use of formliners to create deep shadows that contrast with smooth, crisp surfaces.
