Hamstra Heating and Cooling recently opened its 15,304-square-foot office facility in Tucson, Arizona, to high accolades, winning the Metal Building Systems-New Award from Metal Construction News.

The building is a hybrid, pre-engineered, metal structure that maximizes aesthetics, energy efficiencies, and the speed of construction. Unique building features include a gabion and glass entry structure, an integral pre-engineered canopy and courtyard screen wall, rainwater harvesting, building signage integrated into the overall architectural design, and a shaded courtyard area, which employees use for breaks and lunch. Additionally, every employee who’s been with Hamstra for more than 20 years has a paving stone in the courtyard, called the Courtyard of Honor.

The building contains a 1,500-square-foot heating and cooling learning lab for hands-on instruction, an employee fitness gym, warehouse space, multiple open office spaces, and a full cafe. Hamstra’s plan centers on employee support and career growth, technical excellence, and retaining and recruiting top-notch talent.

On Dec. 8, The Wellness Council of Arizona formally recognized Hamstra for process and leadership in work site health promotion and Wade Hamstra as a senior leadership champion of work site wellness.
