About the Project

The mission: remake the former 1960s-era headquarters building of rent-to-own retailer Aaron’s Inc. into a visually stunning boutique office complex with nearly 80,000 square feet of office space above a ground floor devoted to 22,000 square feet worth of retail.

To aid in this dramatic conversion from bland beige brick to industrial chic, our project team clad the structure with 40,000 square feet of StoTherm® ci Classic panels. Prefabricating modules offsite, Southern Wall Systems replaced the original exterior skin in just 22 days.

This approach enhanced the structure’s energy efficiency while promoting speed, quality, value, and safety.

The effort, which incorporated joint-sealant waterproofing, included the installation of Pella window systems.
