Project location - Fairmont, Minnesota
Brunton Architects & Engineers was selected to design the new Commodity Services Professional Building for a client who owns and brokers a transportation/trucking company, Commodity Services Inc, in Fairmont, MN. The site, being located directly across the street from Sweet Financial, aspired to display its own architectural appeal, yet needed to meet a certain architectural quality to fit well within its neighborhood.
The owner requested a 12,000 SF building design that allowed a lower level tenant space to be leased out, as well as give him future opportunities for growth, if needed. Brunton designed this wood framed, two-story contemporary building; complete with ADA compliant passenger elevator, centrally located grand stair, and two tenant suites to occur on an odd shaped triangular property.
The owner’s desire for a contemporary building both inside and out was accomplished through the use of modern colors and materials, contemporary lighting, and high tech design elements. Even the glass, being constructed of both curtain-wall systems and storefront systems, helps to contrast the two-tone glass colors used in this design. Our in-house interior design team pulled together a remarkable product and we are told, the owner couldn’t be happier with the results.
