Key Bank occupies the first floor of this impressive four story office building which anchors Bangor’s downtown Urban Development area. The entrance way is a four story glass atrium which is complimented by four stories of circulation walkways overlooking the building entrance.

Platz Associates chose a structural steel framework and brick facade for the 88,000 square foot structure. A state of the art “intelligent” mechanical system continually monitors the building’s environment to assure comfort to all tenants. Pre-cast concrete floor decks allowed for quicker construction while providing immediate “clean” floors for all the trades to work on once they were set in place. Fiberglass reinforced floor topping provided a crack free surface for finished floor products. Working with the building owner as well as the town officials we were able to pick building materials that would compliment existing architecture in this urban setting. Careful building siting, generous pedestrian walkways, and ample landscaping have made Key Plaza a welcome addition to Downtown Bangor.

In addition to Architectural and Engineering services Platz Associates was engaged to provide Construction Management services for this project. Our resident site inspector as well as our Construction Engineer were able to assure that the project was brought in on time and within the budget. The ability of having the subcontractors working directly for the owner afforded major savings during the project.
