The Martin’s Famous Pastry Shoppe headquarters building is a three-story combination of steel and structural masonry with a multitude of finish materials. The Newcomer Associates’ Architects design was a creative blend of masonry materials on the exterior facade, grand piers, soffits, site signage and entrance fountain. Exterior veneer and columns were constructed of brick accented with Arriscraft and ArrisCast and with portions using the Arriscraft Thin Clip System. There are interior accent walls of Adair Limestone, both rock face and smooth finish. A total of 21,500 concrete masonry units went into the structural build-out, along with 59,500 modular brick units and an additional 10,363 specialty units in both interior and exterior.
The Witmer Group was challenged by brutal winter conditions and the resulting necessary fast-paced recovery schedule, however the job was completed on time after 3 months of injury-free 50-hour workweeks. The result is a showcase of innovative finishes for this staple brand’s home base. Awarded: Excellence in Masonry over $250K, by the Associated Builders & Contractors, Keystone Chapter.
