Karcher

The project consisted of a three story office component attached to a large warehouse. The office serves and the US headquarters for the company. Because of the different roof heights, fire rating and insulation requirements, it was determined that adding a full tilt-wall between the office and the warehouse was the best course of action. This created an unique opportunity to cast-in interior architectural features for the office into the panels separating the two structures. To meet energy code requirements, the warehouse portion of the facility was constructed with non-composite sandwich panels. The office component was built with uninsulated panels and then conventionally insulated during the build out.
