Engineered Construction Recognized as Project of Distinction
February 23, 2017
Engineered Construction was recently awarded the 2016 Projects of Distinction Award by Associated Builders and Contractors in Commercial Construction – $2-$10 million category for The Employer Group building located in Verona.
Type of Construction: 2-story, Design/Build steel structure office building, Class A.
Size of Project: 11356 Square Feet.
This extraordinary building design features a two story curved glass wall, extending the views to the south across the wooded fields beyond. The exterior of the building utilizes much glass and architectural detail, inviting guests to experience much of the same as they enter inside. A large stamped concrete patio incorporates the University of Wisconsin’s “W” into the design and invites staff and guests to have a seat at one of the patio tables while enjoying the surrounding landscape.
The interior of the building has a mix of open and enclosed offices arranged by a curved central spine that reflects the external curved glass wall. The main communicating stair is enclosed in glass and is constructed of stainless steel and stone slab treads/risers. The main conference room pulls the exterior materials in through the stone wall visible through the frameless glass entry wall. The second level opens into a large hospitality space decorated uniquely with reclaimed barn wood and large serpentine bar with granite top. This area was designed to gather employees together and unify the office as The Employer Group expands during future growth.
Adding to the dynamic and expanding business landscape of Verona, Engineered Construction was very proud to facilitate and construct the Employer Group’s new building. A visually stunning architectural building coupled with an extraordinary, creative and employee-focused interior make this project a role model of achievement.
