Wesex Headquarters is a 5,500 square foot high-tech office facility designed by our Chief Design Officer, Melanie Panutsos, AIA, MBA. The building is situated in West Middlesex, PA, once known as a pioneer in the Shenango Valley at the center of the iron business. Though founded in 1954, Wesex functions as a youthful technological start-up, implementing the latest design software to create integrated, innovative design & construction solutions. This project served as both a catalyst and a testing lab for those principles.
The project includes a brand new insulated composite tilt-up concrete structure consisting of 16 panels totaling 2,892 square feet. This new structure sprouts off of an existing pre-engineered metal building, formerly a local bank, which has been completely renovated from head to toe. The design serves to harmoniously merge two construction methods that Wesex utilizes frequently for our clients while showcasing many of the industrial products and solutions that we employ on a daily basis. The space is designed as a high-tech hub for our design/engineering team, but it doubles as a showroom for our clients to see the products that will go into their own spaces. Items from coiling overhead doors to exposed joists and wide flange beams were used in unconventional ways to create a sleek, modern, industrial space.
