Community Matters

Designers with the Maine- and Boston-based AE firm Harriman opted for Panel 20 metal panels in their plans for the new Sargent Family Center on Presque Isle, Maine. Featuring a two-piece aluminum molding system with a 0.075-in. thermoset phenolic resin core, the panels are designed to create a sealed exterior that keeps all moisture away from a building’s structure. They also incorporate a raised profile that creates an accent shadow and a sense of depth. Numerous finishes are available–this project highlights champagne anodized and clear anodized options.

Wichita High School Southeast

New School Design Standard for Wichita High School

Gone are standardized boxy structures, and instead spaces are filled with natural light that promote learning in a healthy environment. A new campus, Wichita High School Southeast, replaces a 1950s structure and meets the community’s growing population needs with current design practices. The exterior showcases the school’s pride and adoption of cost-effective, durable materials. “This was the first all new, comprehensive high school for the district since the 1970s, so they wanted something permanent, but modern,” say Malcolm Watkins AIA, NCARB, LEED AP BD+C, vice president of Schaefer Johnson Cox Frey in 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.
