CORNELIUS, NC (January 30, 2009) - The Associated Builders and Contractors of the Carolinas has presented Edifice, Inc. with an Eagle Award for construction of the Aquesta Bank headquarters building in Cornelius, North Carolina.
The 3-story, 20,000 square foot corporate bank headquarters, completed by Edifice Inc. in February of 2008, is a unique structure complete with a blend of blue/green glass and natural stone as well as environmentally friendly features. Aquesta Bank obtains a substantial amount of power for the building through solar energy panels on the roof. The blue/green glass of the building and unique wave of the roof, designed by Roger Layman Architecture in Davidson, NC were structured to reflect the waters of Lake Norman, the area the community bank serves.
