McElroy Metal supplied materials for the construction of this multi-use corporate headquarters.
In an effort to consolidate operations in several buildings into one modern office and warehouse facility, Terminix constructed a two-story corporate office in a highly visible location along Interstate 26 in Columbia, South Carolina. Aesthetics were essential for this project so three distinct panel profiles from McElroy Metal adorn the façade.
“The exterior design expression needed to pay homage to the materials and color palette of the original structures, but in a contemporary and forward-looking way,” says David Sickinger, AIA, LEED AP, at Garvin Design Group of Columbia. “Since the original buildings on this campus used a gray/beige brick and gray metal panels, the intent was to replicate those material selections as a means to provide a link to the past. The building’s architecture was to be much grander in scale and open in terms of the amount of exterior glazing, so the veneer selection provided an opportunity to incorporate a sense of familiarity. However, the scale of the brick and profiles of the metal panels were changed to respond to the larger scale of the new structure.”
