The Dreyer family knew it needed a significant expansion to its Chatham facility in order to respond to their remarkable success in overhauling a tired old lumberyard, and they selected the CTS Group to design it. Their program called for a new 2-story addition with a second floor design center. The addition was designed to reflect the owner’s refreshing business approach and has allowed the Dreyer family to take their business where it needs to go.
Relevant Project Data:
- Addition included 10,000 square feet of new retail space on the first floor, and a 6,000 square foot design center on the second floor.
- Exterior envelope comprised of a metal roofing system and insulated CMU perimeter walls.
Sustainable Design Notes:
- The structural expression on the building is fabricated of reclaimed red cedar.
- The insulated concrete masonry units used for the exterior envelope were very unique fabrications providing R-Values of 20 in a single-wythe assembly.
