Onsite technical high school named the East Aldine Satellite Center

East Aldine Satellite Center

The Lone Star College system, with multiple campuses in the Houston metropolitan area, takes this approach a step further with its own onsite technical high school named the East Aldine Satellite Center. The 64,000-sq.-ft. facility features a contemporary design with a restrained palette of façade materials, including eye-catching metal panels in two distinctive finishes. Lead architect IBI Group’s designers specified Petersen’s PAC-CLAD architectural cladding for all the metal work, which included three separate products from the company’s line-up. Approximately 20,000 sq. ft. of Precision Series panels in the Highline S1 profile were used for the walls, while another 18,0

Utility Facility Features Gas-Flame Blue Roof

The Sevier County Utility District uses a metal roof as its calling card, using more than 13,500 sq. ft. of metal panels finished in gas-flame blue.

First Federal Bank of Florida

Bank Helps Planned Development Build Community Ties

A new branch for First Federal Bank of Florida puts an industrial twist on basic gabled designs to create a quirky, inviting building that is highlighted with standing-seam metal panels used for both the roof and walls.

Athens High School, Athens, Texas

Metal Adds Modern Look

Façade retrofit is an effective option to consider as buildings are upgraded or converted to continue their service. Such was the case at Athens High School in Athens, Texas, which required a mix of renovation and new construction to bridge old and new buildings. To create a modern design, metal was chosen. Installed on the school were 10,800 sq. ft. of 24-gauge 12-in. PAC-CLAD Flush Panels in White and Silver finish, 17,500 sq. ft. of 24-gauge 12-in. Flush Soffit panels in White finish, and 5,500 sq. ft. of PAC-3000CS Composite Panel finished in a custom maroon school color. Cost was an issue, but ultimately the school felt the investment was made for the metal’s ability to create a d

Alan Apartments, Mesa, Ariz.

Modern Metal-Clad Apartments Are Bright Standout

Building authorities initially took a dim view of the project’s proposed sharp angles and mixed materials, which stood in high contrast to the surrounding beige stucco. The 17-unit, townhome-style Alan Apartments project in Mesa, Ariz., quickly leased out, once construction was completed in late 2018—but it took some doing to get its unique exterior past city planners.  “This project was made to stand out, and not look like all the boring beige houses around it—on purpose it doesn’t look like anything in the area,” says architect Tim Boyle, principal of Tim Boyle Design. “It was rejected by city staff five times because of how it looks, but we s

Shady Situation

When architects with SmithGroup’s Phoenix office began planning the entry for the new Eloy City Hall in Eloy, Ariz., Corten metal was their first choice for the shade-providing canopy. When that material proved too costly, they turned to perforated 0.05-gauge aluminum PAC-CLAD 7.2 panels in an Aged Copper finish. The panels are installed on the underside of the canopy structure, with LEDs installed above. The lighting creates added visual interest once the sun goes down, and clearly identifies the entrance for residents.

On the Wing

Heritage Elementary School in Tahlequah, Okla., by Crafton Tull, features nearly 87,000 sq. ft. of Galvalume Snap-Clad panels. The roof design on each classroom wing features three different levels that minimize mass and offer a sleek look. The 24-gauge steel Snap-Clad panel profile was specified as an option by the architect. “The detailing was complicated and required custom tapered valleys and transitions from each level of the wings,” said Jason Irvin, branch manager of Harness Roofing in Tulsa, the installing contractor. Many of the panels were up to 60-ft. long and were fabricated on-site using Petersen’s portable roll-forming equipment provided from its Tyler, Texas,
