For more than 20 years, Workforce Essentials has assisted thousands of Tennesseans with becoming self-sufficient through job training and placement services. After initially considering renovation of its aging building, the organization’s board of directors determined that construction of a totally new, energy-efficient headquarters was a better course of action.

Workforce Essentials is a private, non-profit organization providing workforce development services for the Tennessee Department of Labor in a nine-county area of middle Tennessee. The organization hired Lyle-Cook-Martin Architects, Clarksville, Tenn. to design the 34,000 sq. ft. multi-level facility.

To meet design objectives, four different Petersen products were selected. The roof uses 20,500 sq. ft. of 16-in. OC 24 gauge Silver Metallic Tite-Loc Plus panels. The façade includes 7,800 sq. ft. of PAC Precision Series HWP panels finished in Sierra Tan and installed vertically. Complementing the façade is 4,000 sq. ft. of 12-in. Almond Flush Panels installed as soffit. In addition, 4,520 sq. ft. of 24 gauge Medium Bronze flat sheet was used for fascia and trim.

According to Mike Jones, the Petersen sales rep responsible for the project, “The utilization of several different types of panels makes this a particularly interesting project. The installer did a great job and now has several more nice projects using PAC-CLAD products in the works.”

Installation of the Petersen material was done by Modern Heating Cooling Roofing, Clarksville, Tenn. The Petersen distributor was Commercial Roofing Specialties, Nashville.
