Adapting to how the market consumes product and information


After getting off to a rocky start thanks to bad weather, the 2014 building market has been rolling along at a healthy pace while the ongoing strength of the AIA Architectural Billings Index gives us reason to be optimistic well into 2015. Dare I say, the commercial construction market looks to be on the mend.


We are looking forward to the upcoming Metalcon show to be held Oct. 1-3, which for the first time will be held in the Mile High City. At the show we will be featuring our entire metal wall and roofing product line. Also at the show we will be highlighting our new slit coil program for PAC-CLAD steel and aluminum. We now carry a complete line of 20-in. and 24-in. coil to support the growing portable roll-forming market.


In addition, we will be launching our new PAC-CLAD app for iPhones and Android smartphones, which already is available for tablets. Our PAC app includes complete flashing details for each of our products; specifications; wind uplift testing data; our color chart – basically our entire product catalog with the portability and user-friendliness of an app.


While at Metalcon stop by our booth (1517) and we’ll show you how to enter a drawing for a new Smartphone.


Before you leave our booth, take 60 seconds to voice your opinion on video. We’ll have a video camera ready to record your opinion about whatever’s on your mind regarding market conditions, labor availability, job site stories, tricks of the trade or your pet peeves. We’ll post your video on our website and promote it through social media.


We look forward to seeing you in Denver.

Sol Harris/ Day Architecture and Anatomy of a Green Building

After 40 years in business, Sol Harris/Day Architecture, North Canton, OH, required new office space. They seized the moment and implemented the firm’s vision of sustainable design into lessons to be followed by all for minimizing environmental impact. The result?  A cool looking building that is energy efficient and environmentally sensitive in every aspect, literally from the ground up.

The design process incorporated green strategies including recycling, reusing and salvaging the existing barn and house structures, superior insulating materials, a white roof to reflect sunlight as well as a green vegetative roof, and the use of natural sunlight wherever possible. Sol Harris/Day hopes that their efforts will result in achieving GOLD LEED status.

 Petersen Aluminum’s 7/8” Corrugated Panel, an exposed fastener panel, was specified for the office’s exterior walls. Over 4000 SF of the .032 aluminum panels with a Weathered Zinc  Metallic PAC-CLAD Kynar finish were installed vertically by Advanced Industrial Roofing.  The aluminum for this project, boasting  over 43% recycle content, was recovered and rollformed in facilities located within 500 miles of jobsite, achieving points toward the LEED categories of MR 4 (recycle content) and MR5 (regional availability).

Check out all of the lessons learned, and established, in sustainable planning, design and construction at
