PROJECT OVERVIEW

Valvoline’s new headquarters was designed to celebrate their heritage as a leader in racing while simultaneously capturing their focus on technology and product innovation. The decision to use precast concrete was made because for a project such as this, it is unparalleled when compared with different frameworks. The double-return panels give this building an alluring qualityhighlighted its geometry, and was also financially attainable and able to be produced within an anticipated timeframe. 

Key Project Attributes

  • Acid-etched precast panels provide the structure with a natural stone quality that contrasts against the lighter aluminum and glass elements used within the design.

  • Creative hidden connections used allow adjustments above the “floating” column wrap end to help stabilize and work with the superstructure while still achieving the dramatic design.

  • Double return column wraps were completed in three separate pours to create a sleek and clean look that would line up best with the steep angled ends.
