Project Update: University of North Carolina Dental School Closes in On Completion



With the first shipment of panels beginning in March of 2011, Petersen Aluminum contractor Hamlin Roofing of Garner, NC is closing in on a mid-October completion date for the breathtaking UNC-Chapel Hill Dental Sciences Building.


Planning for this project began almost two years ago between PAC, Hamlin Roofing and architect, FLAD Architects & Engineers, Raleigh, NC. The grand, steep-slope roof is sure to be noticed, with 32,000 square feet of Petersen’s Snap Clad standing seam architectural panel in 20 oz copper. The building also features 2300 SF of the PAC Flush Wall/Soffit panel in the same material.


The Dental Sciences Building is scheduled for opening in early 2012, and will feature state-of-the-art educational and research facilities, as well as office and administrative space. With the new 216,000 SF facility, the UNC School of Dentistry hopes to continue the traditions established when it opened its doors in 1950 to create opportunities for a diverse student population to serve patients across the state and the world.


The facility is also evident of the University’s sustainability initiatives, and is aiming for LEED Silver status. Copper is 100% recyclable, which will reduce future landfill waste, and is also produced from 90 – 95% recycled copper.
