Colorful Transformation

March 4, 2019

Formerly a well-worn plastics manufacturing facility, the new Technology Campus expansion for South Texas College in McCallen, Texas, features a standout façade clad in Alucobond aluminum composite material panels that highlight the school’s signature colors. The custom green, violet and silver-metallic hues specified by designers at Hidalgo, Texas-based EGV Architects offer a hard-to-miss counterpoint to neutral brick and split-face block. The panels’ durable finish promises to stand up to years of exposure to the Texas sun.
