PJ Dick served as general contractor for the interior fitout of 6,000 sf of office space in an existing building including an executive office, large interactive conference room, reception area, art display areas, and kitchen. Architectural details include frameless glass partitions with sliding glass doors, a three-foot clerestory that allows natural light to filter through the office, and luminous ceilings along the open space that comfortably support the largely daylighted space. Integration of green building practices included maximizing use of daylight, perforated metal shades on exterior windows to block glare and heat yet allow view of river and city skyline, renewable, formaldehyde free bamboo flooring, cork flooring and recyclable carpeting, countertops made of 30% recycled glass, drywall made of 100% recaptured material, fresh air and carbon monoxide sensor added to base building HVAC and heat recovery. The project was recognized for excellence in Architectural Detail/Craftsmanship when it was awarded the 2005 AIA Award of Excellence. The project also was a Finalist in the Master Builders' Association of Western Pennsylvania's 2004 Building Excellence Awards in the "Best Project Under $5 Million Category".
