Proj Overview

“Insulated precast panels were a natural choice because we were able to use them as structural components and as design elements meeting the 2015 IECC insulation requirements.  Since our client mainly served the agricultural industry, we used a combination of woodgrain barn board form liners to create a unique modern agricultural looking series of insulated vertical panels, spandrels and columns.  In addition to the woodgrain liners, we developed some custom patterns to mimic crossbuck barn door elements, as well as, casting in faux windows in large portions of wall where windows were not actually needed or wanted. In addition to the aesthetics beings very important, we needed a cost-effective solution for a building envelope that contained Corporate Offices, Engineering Offices, a Warehouse, and an Animal Centered Research Facility.” David Parker, CBS Squared Inc.

Project Overview

VES needed to construct a new 115,000-square-foot headquarters that would include a research center and provide office space. In all, the design was able to accommodate an increased number of employees, a location for research & development, and inventory logistics.

The headquarters was designed with highly-efficient precast insulated concrete structural walls.

The building features a custom wood grain formliner designed specifically by the customer’s architecture desire.
