The 50,000 SF two-story corporate headquarters of C.D. Smith Construction was built to accommodate growth. Its siting and arrival sequence was carefully choreographed to present and experience the building, which sits on an open prairie site. The building is raised on a plinth and partially exposed basement level to give it a stately presence. A sloped roofline extends over a cantilevered second-floor terrace. The project was designed to maintain high-energy efficiency and received LEED Gold Certification. 294 roof-mounted photovoltaic panels provide nearly 40% of the building's electric power. The interior finish is modern and features brand colors of gray, black and yellow.
