A field office designed for Chesapeake Energy Corporation that had specific requirements.
First, it had to provide and economical solution for their building needs that included a “safe room” to escape tornadic weather. Also a distinctive solution was needed that would use low maintenance materials for the building. Lastly the building needed to be constructed as quickly as possible in a remote location.
Standard geometric forms were incorporated that created an “honesty” with the function, shape and material. The corrugated Galvalume metal panels are reminiscent of local metal farm buildings and reflect the heat in the hot months of the year. The desire was a metal building system that would allow simple detailing for clean, “architectural” trim pieces.
