Office & Mixed-Use

Pierpont Corporate Center, Morgantown, W.Va.

This 38,900-square-foot, mixed-use center includes retail on the first floor and business offices on the second. General Industries used a Varco Pruden Rigid Frame framing system and a brick and stone exterior wall. The SSR roof, also from Varco Pruden, is painted Leaf Green.

The strong iconic features and the permanence of a metal roof enhanced the project. The use of a metal building system was a crucial factor in completing the corporate center quickly. Time was an essential element of the project, which was completed in August 2010.

Builder: General Industries, Charleroi, Pa.

Architect: The Omni Associates Architects Inc., Fairmont, W.Va.
