Harmon Earns Excellence in Construction Award
The Michiana Area Construction Industry Advancement Fund recently presented Harmon Inc.s Indiana team with an Excellence in Construction Award for providing the glass-walled exterior of the Crowe Chizek and Co. expanded headquarters in South Bend, Ind.

The $10.8-million project is a three-story, 50,000-square-foot office building that was designed by The Troyer Group, an Indiana architectural firm.

For the job, Harmon engineered and fabricated a functional glazing system. The company used its HPW250 standard pressure wall system and installed 30,000 square feet of reflective Viracon glass and aluminum framing, as well as doors and trim.

A main architectural feature of the building is where two walls meet at a 135-degree point. We created a bull-nose aluminum trim cover to blend this point seamlessly into the rest of the window system, said Larry Schultz, Harmon project manager.
