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 18,000 sq. ft. of Flush panels were used for the roof overhang’s soffit and fascia, all of which were 22-gauge steel in a Copper Penny finish. Another 800 sq. ft. of 0.05-gauge aluminum Highline S1 panels in a red finish were used to create the freestanding sign kiosk for the school.
