Over 5,000 sq. ft. of Stonewood Architectural Panels accent the Franklin Electric headquarters in Ft. Wayne, IN.
The innovative building utilizes geothermal heating and cooling and incorporates aesthetic exterior water features to act as functional parts of the system. Stonewood Panels were selected in a warm woodgrain design to complement the hues of these unique exterior features as well as the modern cool-toned façade. Panels were cut in various sizes to resemble attractive wood “planks” and were then attached with custom-colored exposed fasteners. Manufactured in the United States, Stonewood Panels offered Franklin Electric an exceptional lead time and an economical price point.
The 118,800 square foot building will continue to house the company’s current headquarters staff of 245 employees, as well as a state-of-the-art 24,000 square foot testing lab.
