Construction of a new 4-level, 108,000 sq.ft. building to serve as headquarters for SEMCO. The first level is tilt-up pre-cast panels with brick veneer and piers between curtain wall areas. The three upper floors are aluminum curtain wall with metal panels. The office features a light shelf on the interior of the building to reflect light to utilize natural lighting, and also a sun shake on the exterior to shade light at times of day when the light could be intense in areas of the building. Adjacent to the office building is a 3-level, 400-space parking garage.
These structures are the first phase of a 72-acre development by Acheson Ventures LLC. Named “Desmond Landing,” the site is located in Port Huron on the waterfront where the Black and St. Clair Rivers merge.
The project received Silver LEED certification. The Clark Team coordinated and documented many aspects of the project as part of the requirements to achieve points for LEED certification. Included was an on-site waste management plan that resulted in recycling 85% of the construction waste materials.
