Health Center Highlights Creative Use of Concrete Masonry Units

January 30, 2024 – The new Mount Nittany Health Toftrees Outpatient Center currently under construction in State College, PA, boasts a unique design, featuring a blend of various York Building Products concrete masonry colors for the building envelope. Adding to the visual appeal, the architects integrated a variety of our block finishes to lend the structure a textured look. To enhance the aesthetic further, the walls incorporate multiple-height blocks, resulting in a dispersed, ashlar appearance.

Crafting such a intricate array of masonry units poses a significant challenge for the architect, and the installation of these diverse units demands a well-coordinated and focused team of contractors to ensure successful execution.

We extend our appreciation to everyone involved in this project– Harris Masonry, Alexander Building Construction (The Butz Family of Companies), and Stantec — from the initial design phase through the completion of construction.
