Exterior metal panels in 4 colors complete total building transformation
Alorica, an Irvine, Calif.-based customer engagement services company, has opened a regional call center in downtown Owensboro, Ky. Located in the former BB&T Bank building, the 830-job facility is one of the city’s largest-ever economic development projects, said Kentucky governor Matt Bevin. Alorica employs more than 92,000 people at 150 locations worldwide.
The 5-story, 52,000-sq.-ft. building underwent a massive transformation inside and out. The call center now has a modern, open concept with an “industrial tech” feel. The fifth floor is dedicated as an employee break area with hang-out space and gaming systems as well as a roof top deck with a view of the riverfront and downtown. The ground floor is mixed-use that includes a Bar Louie restaurant, which has 110 locations across the country.
Several of Petersen’s PAC-CLAD profiles in an attractive blend of complementary colors contributed to the successful transformation of the building. The colors include Cityscape, Weathered Zinc, Matte Black and Berkshire Blue. Cityscape and Weathered Zinc are PAC-CLAD Cool Colors. The Petersen profiles include Flush/Reveal Wall panels, Flush/Vented Flush Soffit panels and 7.2 Exposed Fastener panels.
The PAC-CLAD panels were installed by Wilkerson Plastering and Acoustics. Design for the renovation was created by Axiom Architecture. Both firms are located in Owensboro.
The general contractor on the project was Jenkins Essex Construction Co. in Elizabethtown, Ky.
