COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Earlier this month, S-5! broke ground on its new office space to provide sufficient space for its staff and to better serve its customers.
S-5!'s new corporate headquarters will be located on more than 4.5 acres in the Black Forest area of Colorado Springs where S-5! clamp-to-seam technology was birthed 30 years ago.
The two-story office building will sport metal finishes, a solar roof and comfortable but provocative space for its thought-leaders to collaborate. The adjacent barn will be repurposed for S-5!'s video training center, prototype shop and test facilities.
The use of exterior materials will be harmonious with the rustic mountain rural and local architecture and feature a double-folded standing seam metal roof hosting a 50 kilowatt solar photovoltaic system and supported by hand-peeled log truss/columns. Corten steel (sometimes known as weathered steel) will provide a rustic appearance. A combination of natural stone (moss rock) and stucco will complete the natural earth-tone look and feel of the space.
The office will be used to bring the executive staff of S-5! together for better, creative collaboration, birthing new and better product and marketing ideas and developing company initiatives.
“The entire site and construction is designed to resemble and feel like a residence, as this is our business culture and harmonizes with the Black Forest persona,” said Rob Haddock, S-5! CEO and founder. “We are excited to finally have the space we need to meet the demands for our growing business.”
