Wichita High School, Wichita, Kansas

Bullish on Education

Replacing a 1950s predecessor, the new Wichita High School Southeast in Wichita, Kansas, is its district’s first new comprehensive high school since the 1970s. Designed by the hometown firm of Schaefer Johnson Cox Fry, the new facility makes an immediate visual impact, thanks to the combination of Envelope 2000 RS metal composite material panels and tinted glass curtainwall. Highlighting the school colors of black and gold—and, with a supersized mural of the school’s gold-toned buffalo mascot, the panels’ easy installation also helped speed the aggressive two-year construction schedule.

M&T Bank Stadium

Etched on a Raven's Wing

With metal mesh panels etched with a signature raven’s wing, Baltimore’s M&T Bank Stadium went for the gold—LEED Gold that is.

The 32 stainless mesh panels provide airflow, comfort from the elements and views of downtown for guests accessing the stadium’s upper levels via pedestrian ramps and stadium escalators. The etching process darkened the polished stainless steel with a matte finish—in the shape of a raven’s wing, of course.
