Friends In Action International (FIA) exists to facilitates and equip mission work around the world by partnering with national believers to reach those who have never heard the goood news. FIA contacted Scenic Ridge when they began planning for their new USA Headquarters in Middletown PA. They needed a large space for equipment and supplies. They also needed office space to be used by volunteers and administrative staff. A pre-engineered metal building was designed as an economical long-term solution to meet these needs. The new facility provides 24,000 square feet of 24’+ high storage/shop space and 12,000 square foot 2-story office space.
The facility was also designed with energy conservation in mind. A geothermal ground-source HVAC system was installed to reduce energy consumption. Split-face block and beautiful timbers and natural stone were used for an attractive and functional front entrance. A standing-seam metal roof system and metal siding with fiberglass insulation were used for their low-maintenance and economical characteristics. Large insulated aluminum windows allow natural light to permeate the office spaces.
