PAC Tite-Loc Plus and Flush Metal Roofing Panels Selected for Eglin Air Force Base Child Centers


With the relocation of the 7th Special Forces Group and the arrival of the joint strike fighter, Eglin Air Force Base near Fort Walton Beach, FL was expecting over 2200 new members and their families to join their base.  To accommodate this huge influx, the new Child Development Center, funded through the Base Realignment and Closure, opened in January and will have the ability to care for 744 children on a daily basis. Throughout the country, 18 bases will house 36 similar CDC’s to be opened in the future.


The center features two separate buildings, each boasting 50,000 SF of Tite-Loc Plus structural standing seam metal roofing panels and 20,000 SF of PAC Flush metal roofing panels used in wall and soffit applications. Both panels were produced from 24 gauge galvalume steel metal roofing with a PAC-CLAD Sandstone Kynar 500 finish.


PAC Tite-Loc Plus, 180-degree mechanically seamed metal roofing panels, are Florida Building Code compliant and offer superior wind uplift resistance. For this specific military project, 22 GA metal roofing panels were utilized for the Corner Edge Zones for added wind uplift resistance required for base facilities.


West Coast Roofing of Milton, FL provided the detailed and critical installation for this project, and PAC distributor was Alabama Roofing Supply of Mobile, AL. The design-build team consisted of architect Barge Waggoner Sumner & Cannon, Inc., and general contractor A.E New Jr and Whitesell-Green, of Pensacola, FL.
