Pella

Pella Windows by Horne is the exclusive Pella Window Distributor for much of Michigan. They decided to build a new facility on a Brownfield site located in a Renaissance Zone.

The site was slightly smaller than Pella needed, but by increasing the eave height to 28’, they were able to dramatically increase the cubic volume of the building. The building features custom window banding with operable ‘awning’ style Pella windows. A long-lasting pre-cast concrete panel was chosen for the exterior because it would withstand the elements, handle significant hi-lo traffic and remain attractive over a long duration. Vibrant colors were used through out the office area, providing a cheerful environment for the 11,000 sq. ft. of office space. Indirect lighting, combined with the massive amount of windows, provides ample work level lighting. The shop area is painted in light colors, which combined with the upper windows, provides a very bright work area.

This facility was awarded the 2005 Hall of Fame designation by VP Buildings in the ‘warehouse’ category as an example of an outstanding integration of building systems, products and design.
