Cronimet Corporations's U.S. headquarters, a 13,265 square foot office building in Aliquippa, PA. Petrus Engineering and Ken Shiderly Construction teamed together for a complete turn-key project. The building is an example of spacious and functional architecture that was designed with low operating costs in mind. The exterior walls were constructed using ICF technology, with a striking split-faced masonry facade, which gives an effective R-value of 43 and the solidness that only reinforced concrete walls can give. The HVAC is a state-of-the-art VRF (variable refrigerant flow) system that is so efficient that for much of the year they are cooling some of the zones in the buildinng by heating other zones (there are 29 zones in the building!). The entire interior space is lit with highly efficient and decorative LED lighting . . . giving both a natural and comfortable light as well as a very real power savings.
