Ace Avant Office

Project summary provided by submitting company.

Ace Avant Concrete Construction's new office building was completed in November, 2018 based on an "Old Mill" concept to match the commercial/industrial buildings in the area. There are two buildings connected by a glass foyer, one is modeled after late 1800s construction and the other replicates early 1900s construction. Many of the local historic buildings' architectural features reflect "Slow Burning Construction", or the gradual architectural changes displayed as a mill or factory slowly expands and builds additions over time. This old look was mimicked in the new Ace Avant Offices. The two story, 22,586 sq. ft. building is composed of tilt-up sandwich panel construction using Thermomass insulation with composite connectors. Five different form-liners were used on one building. To achieve the aged appearance, a multi-step process was designed to create a custom color and look for the brick. The other building utilized 12,000 sq. ft. of thin brick. Custom "old brick stamps" were used to stamp the interior walls of both buildings. To complete the look, the 22,000 sq. ft. of sidewalk, parking lot, and driveway are cobblestone stamped.
