Architectural firm KAI Enterprises chose insulated metal panels to build the nearly 500,000 square-foot facility. More than 98,000 square-feet of Kingspan’s KS Mini Micro-Rib and Optimo Smooth panels were used on the project in regal white, dark bronze and bright silver colors.
The terminal expansion of Oklahoma City’s Will Rogers World Airport features four interior and two exterior curtain wall systems of transparent glass held in place with narrow stainless steel frames. These curtain walls increase the amount of natural light within the terminal, bolster the visual connection between spaces, and update the overall design aesthetic of the airport.
To speed construction – and ease transitions for students who might get shifted to new facilities as they become available – the county-wide school district has developed model plans for its K-8 and senior high buildings.
The renovation and retrofit of the Science IV building on the campus of Binghamton University demonstrates how the skillful design, fabrication and application of ALUCOBOND® PLUS can transform an outdated, boring façade.
Standing 366 feet tall and 516 feet wide, MSG Sphere is the largest spherical structure in the world. Designed by Populous, it features a 580,000-square-foot LED wrap-around exterior, covered in 1.2 million LED lights.
For each pixel, Linetec finished an 8-by-8-inch extruded aluminum flapper panel in the corresponding color. To achieve the pixelated mural effect, 35 unique colors were chosen to match West’s original artwork.
Sesquicentennial Hall, which is connected to the existing Busby Hall of Engineering, is a 200,000-square-foot new structure, created to support interdisciplinary engineering and computer science. A key to the success of the project was the exterior aesthetics.
During the design phase, the project team needed an exterior cladding solution that could accommodate a fast-paced construction schedule, requiring material with a simple, fast installation. In addition, the team sought material that would seamlessly integrate with the glass curtainwall design, the facade’s defining feature.
For this project, Sunrise Erectors field verified the completed elevations for the panel releases and also released panels for elevations that needed to be constructed. Coordination with the construction manager was required and very important to hold the dimensions on new elevations that were constructed after the panel release.
