Best Projects Award of Merit Specialty Contracting: Adjustable Forms
Renovations and additions to its 8,000-sq-ft office and 12,000-sq-ft warehouse afforded concrete contractor Adjustable Forms Inc. the opportunity to showcase the craft and expertise it provides to clients.
The contractor specified post-tensioning for roof and floor slabs, insulated sandwich walls for full-height concrete walls and traditional reinforced concrete for much of the building's base. It also utilized several form-liner textures and true wood planks to achieve varying levels of finish. New and existing warehouse walls incorporate a high-performance rain screen system. Dark panels add contrast to minimalist light-colored massing.
The finished facility incorporates existing piles, foundations and brick walls, among other components.
