USC Science & Technology Building
The new Science & Technology Building at the University of South Carolina’s New River Campus in Bluffton, SC, is one of three new buildings on the campus with Petersen roofs.
More than 30,000 sq. ft. of PAC-CLAD .032 aluminum Tite-Loc Plus Metal Roofing Panels and Flush Panel soffit material finished in Silver Metallic were utilized on the building. Tite-Loc Plus Panels combine an attractive thin-rib profile with superior structural performance.
The building was designed by Watson Tate Savory Architects, Columbia, SC. According to Michael Watson, principal, “We selected aluminum because of the campus’ coastal location. Aluminum is clearly the material of choice for that environment. And we specified the Tite-Loc Plus Panels because of the high wind load requirements. The building has performed well and looks great, too.”
The roofing contractor on the project was Custom Roofing and Painting Company, Columbia, SC.
