Designed to make an impact, the BRPH office building helps to modernize an older area that has had little or no other recent development.
The four-story building is fashioned after a traditional European-style open studio model. Individual workspaces receive natural light from oversized perimeter windows, and waist-high partitions between the spaces encourage creative collaboration.
In addition to exterior Tilt-Up walls, Tilt-Up core walls were used in place of CMU on the stairwells and elevator shafts, a design shift that allowed the schedule to be shortened and also prevented the need for scaffolding, ensuring a less congested and safer project.
Large glass facades, as well as curved panel walls and projected panel entryways, provide architectural enhancements to the building. A neutral color scheme and applied raised bands support the building's Class A status, while the addition of applied EIFS bands, medallions and moldings completes the modern look of the project.
To help the building achieve LEED Silver certification, the contractor used recycled material in the concrete and 100-percent melted scrap for the reinforcing steel.
