Dick’s Sporting Goods Cranberry Crossroads


Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania, USA


As DICK’s Sporting Goods expands its presence throughout the country, it works to create stores that are beautiful and functional as well as harmonized in appearance to provide customers with a familiar look and feel for both stand-alone store locations and those that are integrated into shopping centers or malls. Located in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania, DICK’s Sporting Goods Store 1012 is an 80,000-square-foot, two-story store that is the anchor of the development.

 

Kawneer was selected to provide products that deliver a design and performance solution in all DICK’s Sporting Goods locations across the United States. To create stores that are beautiful and functional, the design features large expanses of glass for displays and natural lighting. Curtain wall and storefront framing systems from Kawneer help increase natural daylighting and views into the store and is designed to provide visual impact for almost any type of building.


Products Used:
1600 Wall System™1 Curtain Wall
Trifab™ VersaGlaze™ (VG) 451T Framing System


In 1948, 18-year-old Dick Stack opened the first DICK’s Sporting Goods store. Located in Binghamton, New York, the first store originally served as a bait and tackle shop and by 1958, Stack expanded his product line to include much of what is featured at DICK’s Sporting Goods today. With more than 500 stores across the United States, DICK’s Sporting Goods is one of the largest sporting goods retailers, offering a wide range of sports equipment, apparel and footwear in a specialty store environment.

 

As DICK’s expands its presence throughout the country, it works to create stores that are beautiful and functional as well as harmonized in appearance to provide customers with a familiar look and feel. To do so, the company worked with a team to create a design that would work for both stand-alone store locations and those that are integrated into shopping centers or malls. They also selected materials and distributors who would coordinate all projects, no matter the site location. Core Marketing, Inc. in Gibsonia, Pennsylvania was awarded the contract, and Kawneer was selected to provide products that deliver a design and performance solution in all DICK’s porting Goods locations across the United States.

 

Located in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania, DICK’s Sporting Goods Store 1012 in the Cranberry Crossroads development – a ground-up, 17-acre, 209,749-square-foot development – is an 80,000-square-foot, two-story store that is the anchor of the development. The project featured curtain wall and storefront framing systems from Kawneer. Glass Erectors Inc. in Reynoldsville, Pennsylvania was selected as the glazing contractor and worked closely with Core Marketing and Kawneer to ensure project requirements were met in the proper timeframe. The store celebrated its launch with a grand opening weekend featuring a variety of special athlete appearances. The Cranberry Township location is the retailer’s 36th store in the state of Pennsylvania and its 506th store nationwide.

 

DESIGN HIGHLIGHTS
The need to adapt to a lifestyle center, strip center or mall end cap was paramount to the overall design. To create stores that are beautiful and functional, the design features large expanses of glass for displays and natural lighting.

 

CHALLENGES
The most unique challenge of the project was the accelerated lead times required to meet tight construction schedules.
