Manheim, PA | Completed December 2008 | Existing: 14,176 square feet | Addition: 7,392 square feet
Addition to the existing corporate offices for BR Kreider & Sons, an site and excavation contractor located near Manheim PA. The addition more than doubled the amount office space available to the firm. It provided a much needed elevator, staff training & meeting room and office spaces for field superintendants that had been using a corner of the warehouse for desk space. It also provided improved locker and toilet room facilities for the field staff. The addition was constructed using ICF (insulating concrete form) walls and features a super-insulated roof and first floor slab. These construction systems along with the use of ground-source heat pumps for heating and cooling have produced a very solid, quiet and energy efficient building.
