New Castle, PA, June 26, 2012 – Varco Pruden Buildings, one of the nation's largest providers of metal building systems, has announced Dallas Hartman's new office complex will be inducted into their 2011 Hall of Fame. The 18,000 – square foot office structure was completed in November of 2011 and is the current home of Dallas W. Hartman, PC, Attorneys at Law.
Varco Pruden is one of the world's premier building groups. They provide innovative steel building systems for offices, warehouses, and schools in the Americas, throughout Europe, and into Asia. Lee Michael Industries, Inc., General Contractor and Steel Fabricator, of New Castle, PA, is the Varco Pruden affiliate that completed the work. Since 2005, Lee Michael Industries has built a number of Varco Pruden buildings in both the private and commercial sectors. Mr. Hartman feels privileged to have hired these local contractors, stimulating economic growth in the region, and finalizing a world-class project.
The highly competitive Hall of Fame Award is presented to the independent builders whose work reflects outstanding integration of building systems, products, architectural appearance, end use, and design. "The Hall of Fame is proof positive that our builders continue to challenge the boundaries by seeking new and innovative ways to prove that pre-engineered buildings are the system of choice," said Chuck Haslebacher, president of Varco Pruden.
Bill Fransicone, owner of Lee Michaels Industries, described the finished product as "a premier facility in Lawrence County." He went on to say that "Dallas took the building to the next level with the beautiful stonework, roof lines, and customized interior."
The building, located at 201 Green Ridge Dr., features a cathedral ceiling in the waiting area, four conference rooms, several executive suites, a vast workspace, and a warehouse in the rear of the building. Mr. Hartman describes the building as "exceeding his expectations." He went on to mention that he is "proud that his employees can call such a beautiful place home for at least eight hours a day." He credits his general contractor, Steve Zeppelin and the co-owners of Lee Michaels Industries, Bill Fransicone and Brian Harr for their dedication in completing such a quality product.
