Adroit Contractors, Inc.

This 2,700 square foot office building was “wedged” into a small infill lot on courthouse hill. Built air-tight with SIPs walls and roof, the high-efficient heat pump, low-E windows and doors and LED lighting make this office a very comfortable place to work!

 

The Wedge is an infill project. Aptly named for the shape of the building and the way it fits the small lot it is on.  It is an approximately 2,702 sf professional office building. The Wedge features in ground infiltration for roof water, a low water use irrigation system, it has an insulated slab, is a SIPS (Structural Insulated Panel System) building in the walls and roof system. We have used highly efficient windows and doors. The majority of our lighting is LED, in the interior troffers and the exterior security lighting. We have used a high efficiency heat pump system to condition the space and make our office a very comfortable place to work.
