Erie Insurance has unveiled plans to build a new office building on its campus in downtown Erie, Pennsylvania.
The company has selected Detroit-based architectural firm Albert Kahn Associates for the design and Pittsburgh’s PJ Dick for the construction of the new building.
The $135M project will include four larger floors and three smaller tower floors, covering a total area of 32,150sq m.
It will include large collaboration areas, an open courtyard, and bridges connecting to other Erie buildings and parking ramps. The new office will be the largest building on Erie's campus, with a capacity to accommodate up to 1,200 staff.
The building will incorporate environmental-friendly features conforming to LEED standards.
Erie Insurance CEO Timothy NeCastro said: "The buildings on our main campus are at full capacity with little room for expansion. Our master campus plan calls for another large office space to accommodate Erie's growth needs today and into the future.”
Construction work is expected to commence in early 2017, and be complete within three years.
