When Skanska USA Building was tasked with the fast-track project of a sleek and modern Cruise Terminal in Port Canaveral, the obvious choice was the knock-out combination of contractor Quality Metals, Inc., of Sanford Florida and Petersen’s 7.2 and R-36 exposed fastener panels.
Cruise Terminal #6 is designed specifically for the modern generation of cruise ships and passenger amenities. The $26.6 million facility is part of an overall $60 million upgrade. It features a two-story atrium which is clad with 43,000 SF of PAC’s 7.2 rib wall panels produced in .032 aluminum with a PAC-CLAD Kynar Cityscape finish.
Quality Metals was also awarded the canopy roof sections, in which 20,000 SF of PAC’s R-36 panels in 22 GA Galvalume steel in PAC-CLAD Bone White Kynar finish were utilized.
Petersen Aluminum produces a full line of exposed fastener panels ideal for a variety of wall, roofing and equipment screen applications. The panels offer wide a coverage and easy installation for an architecturally pleasing appearance that is also cost-effective.
Groundbreaking for this project was August, 2011 and the expected completion is summer of 2012. The Architect-of-Record is BEA Architects, Inc., Miami, Fl.
