pipefitters local 537
BUILDING FOR A CENTURY-OLD ORGANIZATION, SGA DESIGNED THE NEW FOUR-STORY HEADQUARTERS FOR PIPEFITTERS ASSOCIATION LOCAL 537 TO HONOR THE PAST WHILE SETTING THE STAGE FOR FUTURE ADVANCEMENT.
By investigating all aspects of Pipefitter’s expertise, operations, strategy initiatives, and future goals, we were able to create architectural solutions that support and showcase their work.
History is enmeshed in the design, and the dynamic lobby integrates displays that highlight a century of achievements and member stories.
The materials selected evoke a workshop environment, including a two-story plywood- paneled wall etched with expressions of Pipefitters’ key values; a steel-pipe wall showcases the detail of welded seams, with organizational mottos engraved on water jets.
Encompassing a training center, offices, a multi-purpose auditorium, and classroom, the new headquarters incorporates innovative green strategies, and member-friendly HVAC systems.
