PEACE RIVER ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE MANATEE SERVICE OFFICES
As part of the growing needs in the Lakewood Ranch area and PRECO’s commitment to customer service a new Service Center was needed. This new Service Center provides PRECO’s custumer with a more convenient location for payment and personal contact. In addition the Service Center serves a practical location to meet with the leaders of SMR to discuss the electrical needs of the community as it continues to grow.
Our goal as Architects was to provide PRECO and their customers a functional and recognizable building that spoke to the essence of what PRECO stands for in the community. To do so we integrated the colors of the company in to the colors of the building. We also used materials that are forward thinking, being sustainable and also easy to maintain. These materials were installed in a manner that reinforced the concept of electrical movement.
As part of the permitting process in Lakewood Ranch, we prepared material boards and renderings to show SMR how the building would be a welcome addition to the architectural language that would typically be required and accepted in Lakewood Ranch. Speaking to the vision and integrity of SMR the building now plays an important part of the fabric of the Lakewood Ranch community.
