Derrick Corporation

Manufacturing Addition

In 2011, Lehigh completed this fast-paced, 128,000 sf addition to Derrick Corporation’s manufacturing plant. The building is constructed of structural steel with load-bearing, precast concrete perimeter walls. To allow natural light into the manufacturing space, the design team decided on skylights, a feature unique in manufacturing buildings. There are approximately 70 skylights measuring 5 ft. by 9 ft. As a green element, the skylights will not only help reduce energy costs, they will also increase productivity. The lighting control systems for the building are integrated with daylighting sensors to maintain light levels during all hours of the day.
