Community Partner

This new three-story glass office building is located on 37th Boulevard just off Archer Road and serves as Drummond’s first free-standing bank within the city of Gainesville. The contemporary design is meant to illustrate Drummond’s commitment to transparency in banking along with their commitment to the growing client base in Gainesville.

The design of the building was meant to project the appearance of a single continuous glass wall that spanned across multiple floors. Scorpio engaged the use of the sleek, uninterrupted all-glass façades called the Clearwall® Curtain Wall System. The Clearwall Curtain Wall System is an innovative 4-sided Toggle Glazed (TG) system* that delivers the highly desired aesthetic for low-rise applications. This type of curtain wall strikes a balance of form and function through its toggle design, which reduced installation labor, simplified on-site logistics, and enhanced safety while providing superior aesthetics.

This site for this building was an undeveloped tract of land that had unique water and elevation challenges. The open site was carefully developed to preserve the adjacent wetlands and address the eight-foot elevation change. This elevation difference required the construction of a large retaining wall around two-thirds of the property. In addition to the new retaining wall and expansive parking lot with a drive-thru area, Scorpio also worked with Drummond Community Bank and the City of Gainesville to modify 37th Boulevard to improve access to the site with a new turn lane.
