Additional Space That Allows for Less Electrical Consumption

Construction has been completed at Capital Self Storage’s West York facility. SAAarchitects created an additional 38,000 square feet of usable rental space to the remaining buildings on site. In an effort to be more energy efficient, SAA recommended and installed solar panels to one of the finished buildings.

Structural Improvements- Another Step Towards Improved Living

Construction for York, PA’s Bell Socialization Services’ building is on schedule for a Fall 2013 completion. SAAarchitects helped to bring new life and use to the once vacant building by developing it into four apartments that will function as transitional housing. The potential occupants of the newly renovated building will be Bell Socialization Services’ residents who are transitioning back into living by their own means. Modifications to the building, previously occupied as Bells’ corporate offices (although, vacant since the 1980′s), included interior demolition and renovation, as well as exterior facade improvements.
