Waterfront resort’s new 74-room inn topped with complicated metal roof

The recently expanded Palmetto Bluff Resort in Bluffton, S.C., now boasts a new 74-room inn complete with extensive high-end amenities and a Petersen Snap-Clad roof finished in custom color Patrician Bronze. Approximately 75,000 sq. ft. of PAC-CLAD 24 gauge Galvalume panels was installed on a tight deadline.

 

Designed by Dallas-based HKS Architects, the Resort’s new inn sits alongside an expanded lagoon waterway and was inspired by the R.T. Wilson Jr. mansion built on the property in the early 1900s. The Resort is set within the 20,000 acre Palmetto Bluff community and conservation preserve that features an array of Southern-style residential neighborhoods ranging from multi-million dollar legacy family compounds to more traditionally sized single-family homes.

 

Installation of the Snap-Clad Panels on the 154,000 sq. ft. luxury inn was completed by Southern Roof & Wood Care in Hardeeville, S.C. “It was a complicated job with three adjoining sections of the roof and lots of different elevations, planes and dormers. The flashing details were complex,” said Southern President David Swanson.

 

Southern Roof & Wood Care has considerable experience with Petersen and the PAC-CLAD profiles. “We like Snap-Clad because it doesn’t require mechanical seaming. We use it whenever we can and when it meets the wind uplift requirements,” Swanson said. “Of course, we also install a lot of Tite-Loc and Tite-Loc Plus, too. We like using the PAC-CLAD products because we can be competitive in the marketplace. We’re really happy with the Petersen relationship. They stand behind their products.”

 

The general contractor was Choate Construction in Savannah. The Petersen distributor on the project was Commercial Roofing Specialties in Savannah. The Snap-Clad panels were manufactured at Petersen’s plant in Acworth, Ga.

“YMCA’s” metal roof ensures longevity, blends with rustic setting

The YMCA Camp High Harbour at Lake Allatoona just north of Atlanta provides a wide range of day camp and overnight camp experiences. Located on an 82 acre lakefront site, High Harbour offers general and specialty camp programs as well as corporate retreats.

The roof of the new chapel at Camp High Harbour is clad with approximately 18,000 sq. ft. of Petersen’s 22 gauge Snap-Clad Panels finished in Medium Bronze.

An exposed fastener system initially was considered for the roof, said Mike Jones, Petersen’s Georgia and Tennessee architectural sales rep based out of the company’s Acworth, Ga., production facility. “The YMCA was naturally pretty budget-conscious,” Jones said. “But both the architect and installer were quite comfortable with PAC-CLAD products and convinced the Y to use a standing seam profile to get great longevity and better performance.”

Jones also mentioned that Petersen is currently quoting several other YMCA jobs throughout Georgia.

Architectural design for the Camp High Harbour chapel was created by Collins Cooper Carusi, Atlanta. The building fits seamlessly into the rustic setting with a variety of pitches and planes that provide an inviting look.

Installation of the Snap-Clad Panels was completed by Diamond Roofing Co. in Atlanta. The Petersen distributor on the project was Commercial Roofing Specialties (CRS) in College Park, Ga.

Black corrugated wall panels create bold accent for student housing

The new Park Place Apartments at the University of South Carolina in Columbia provides all of the amenities that today’s college student could possibly want. The building offers furnished and unfurnished units ranging from one-bedroom studios to five-bedroom group living apartments. A parking garage for 450 cars and 160 bikes is included in the development along with an amenity center, exterior courtyard, pool and spa.

 

The building’s bold architectural design was created by Kitchen & Associates in Collingswood, N.J. Approximately 20,000 sq. ft. of PAC-CLAD 7/8-in. Corrugated Wall Panels in 24-gauge steel finished in Black color prominently highlight the five-story structure’s exterior.

 

Installation of the Petersen panels was done by Achelpohl Roofing in Columbia. “It’s the first time we’ve used the PAC-CLAD Corrugated on a job that big,” said Amanda Achelpohl. “But we’re currently using it on two other jobs that we have in the works. Metal panels seem to be getting even more popular. They really offer a nice clean look with good longevity.”

 

The general contractor on the project was McCrory Construction Co. in Columbia.

Flashy, functional fire station highlighted with corrugated wall panels

The new two-story, five-bay North Charleston Fire Station No. 2 is designed for maximum efficiency and function. The first floor includes a community/training room, exercise room and offices. The second floor has 12 bunk rooms, kitchen, dining area and day room. The station features both a pole and fireman’s slide to aid in the crew’s ability to quickly move from the second to first floor.

 

Construction of the 19,000 sq. ft. facility was underway when the original roofing contractor was removed from the job. Coming to the rescue was Achelpohl Roofing & Sheet Metal Inc. in Prosperity, S.C. Achelpohl has a long and solid history with PAC-CLAD products and quickly turned to Petersen to provide the corrugated wall panels the design team wanted. Approximately 9,600 sq. ft. of 24 ga. steel PAC-CLAD 7/8-in. Corrugated Wall Panels finished in Metallic Weathered Zinc color was installed along with 1,400 sq. ft. of flat sheet for flashings.

 

The ready availability of metallic color was an important factor, said Brandon Jackson, Petersen’s architectural sales rep covering North and South Carolina. “We keep metallics on the floor as a premium color, not as a special order,” Jackson said. “That was a key factor in this situation as well as the fact that Achelpohl has a lot of confidence in the Petersen products and people. We have a great working relationship. They have some amazing craftsmen.”

 

Architectural design for the project was created by Rosenblum-Coe Architects Inc. in Charleston.

Student housing’s slick design achieved with metal flush panels

The new 650 Lincoln residence on the campus of University of South Carolina in Columbia offers upper classmen an apartment-style housing option. The private, two-phase project includes two separate buildings that offer a combined total of 412,000 sq. ft. of space to house nearly 900 students in fully furnished one- to four-bedroom units. Residential amenities include a clubroom, fitness center, internet café, game rooms and pedestrian connections to campus and nearby sports venues. The mixed-use development also offers ground-level retail and restaurant options.

 

A total of 20,000 sq. ft. of PAC-CLAD Flush Panels was installed horizontally on the two buildings. The 22 gauge panels were finished in Petersen Cool Color Cityscape. Installation of the PAC-CLAD material was completed by Pierre Construction Group in Stone Mountain, Ga.

 

“The 22 gauge panels were an excellent choice for the job,” said Mike Jones, Petersen’s technical/architectural sales representative covering Georgia and Tennessee. “Often times, designers want to use an aluminum composite material but find it’s too expensive and then go to a single skin and expect the same result. The 22 gauge material is a good solution that eliminates oil canning,” Jones explained.

 

Jones was complimentary about the work done by Pierre Construction Group. “The quality of the installer determines success,” Jones said. “The design team wanted to field-lap the panels to get the staggered joint look. That takes some skill, and Pierre’s installers made it work.”

 

Architectural design was provided by Ayers Saint Gross in Baltimore. The firm specializes in higher education projects.

 

The Petersen distributor on the project was Commercial Roofing Specialties (CRS) in College Park, Ga.

Only a double-lock metal roof will suffice for Florida county building

The new 63,500 sq. ft. administration center for Okaloosa County, Fla., replaces an outdated courthouse annex complex in Shalimar, Fla. Initially, DAG Architects in Destin, Fla., and its design-build partner Lord & Son Construction were hired to renovate the annex to bring it up to code compliance and improve security. However, after a detailed evaluation, it was determined to be more cost effective to replace the old building with one that better met the requirements of the County’s staff.

The three-story building is topped with approximately 33,000 sq. ft. of PAC-CLAD Tite-Loc Plus .032-in. aluminum panels finished in Cool Color Bone White. The Petersen panels meet Florida Product Approval and Miami Dade NOA wind uplift requirements. The Tite-Loc Plus panels were factory-formed to length at Petersen’s Acworth, Ga., plant and field-seamed to a 180-degree lock. The 58-ft.-long panels were crane-lifted directly to the roof.

Installation of the Petersen roof was performed by Sheet Metal Masters in Pensacola. The Tite-Loc Plus panels were specified for the job, said Sheet Metal Masters President Billy Cockrell. “Tite-Loc Plus is a common profile here in Florida because it’s double-lock seamed and has stronger wind uplift criteria,” Cockrell said. “It’s also excellent as far as water-tightness.”

Sheet Metal Masters has much experience with Petersen’s PAC-CLAD products. “Those guys are just wonderful to work with,” Cockrell said. “We’re proud to be associated with them. And they seem to work with the better contractors so it’s a win/win for everybody.”

Cockrell was also complimentary about the working relationship with general contractor Lord & Son Construction. “It was a fast-track job that turned out really nice,” Cockrell said.

The Petersen distributor on the project was Roofers Mart in Pensacola.

Combination of corrugated, composite metal panels creates high-tech façade

 

The new Patuxent River Naval Air Museum in Lexington Park, Md., preserves and interprets the Patuxent River Naval Air Base’s history and heritage of advancing U.S. Naval aviation technology. The 22,000-sq.-ft. museum is the repository of artifacts, photographs, documents and related heritage memorabilia from Patuxent River and other naval stations. The facility is dedicated to those who have employed their talents in advancing naval aviation research, development, testing and evaluation.

 

The design for the facility, created by Westlake Reed Leskosky in Washington, D.C., reflects the technological focus of the museum with a contemporary yet uncomplicated palette of materials. Approximately 11,700 sq. ft. of Petersen’s 7/8-in. Corrugated Panels interface with aluminum composite material (ACM) to present a high-tech façade.

 

The 24 gauge PAC-CLAD panels were finished in custom color Cadet Grey to match the ACM.

“We’ve become more aggressive in pursuing custom colors on smaller jobs,” said Kevin Riordan, regional manager at Petersen’s Annapolis Junction, Md., plant. “We can now provide cost-effective custom colors in lower quantities.”

 

Corrugated panels have emerged as an important architectural design element over the past decade. “The use of multiple textures is a common design trend,” Riordan said. “On this project, ACM was the design anchor with the corrugated playing an important complementary role.”

 

The general contractor on the project was Biscayne Construction in Alexandria, Va.

School’s architectural connection to the outdoors is topped with a metal roof

Indian Springs School’s recent Campus Master Plan identified the need to replace or modernize the many aging cinderblock classrooms that dated back to 1952 when the independent day and boarding school opened its doors. Located on 350 acres in the wooded hills south of Birmingham, Ala., the school enrolls 280 students in grades 8-12. Phase one of the three-phase “Springs Eternal” modernization plan consists of three new classroom buildings and a new administration building that together form several gathering areas, shape dynamic spaces and orient views toward the campus’ lake.

Design for the multi-phase update was provided via a collaborative partnership between ArchitectureWorks in Birmingham, and Lake|Flato Architects in San Antonio, with input from a wide range of constituents including board members, alumni, faculty, students and parents. The project is targeting LEED Silver certification.

Approximately 45,000 sq. ft. of Petersen’s Snap-Clad panels finished in PAC-CLAD Cool Color Zinc was installed on four new cypress-clad single-story buildings, all connected by covered walkways. The installation was completed by Quality Architectural Roofing in Birmingham. Roof monitors on the buildings provide daylighting to each classroom while a storefront system and high-performance glazing afford views along the walkways and to the campus beyond. Porch ceilings and overhangs are crafted of wood and are natural frames of the surrounding environment, enhancing the architectural theme of connection to the outdoors.

The design team sought to respect the school’s original structures’ simple forms and materials while opening the buildings to nature. “Our notion was that 21st-century schools could actually feel more like 19th-century schools,” said Greg Papay, Lake|Flato’s partner in charge, referring to the firm’s back-to-basics approach.

The general contractor on the project was BL Harbert International in Birmingham.

The mixed-use development also offers ground-level retail and restaurant options.

A total of 20,000 sq. ft. of PAC-CLAD Flush Panels was installed horizontally on the two buildings. The 22 gauge panels were finished in Petersen Cool Color Cityscape. Installation of the PAC-CLAD material was completed by Pierre Construction Group in Stone Mountain, Ga.

“The 22 gauge panels were an excellent choice for the job,” said Mike Jones, Petersen’s technical/architectural sales representative covering Georgia and Tennessee. “Often times, designers want to use an aluminum composite material but find it’s too expensive and then go to a single skin and expect the same result.

Seven new metal wall panels add visual depth to building exteriors

Petersen expands its Precision Series line of metal wall panels with the addition of seven new Highline products. The Precision Series Highline wall panels feature varying rib patterns and widths for creative architectural effects in commercial, institutional, residential or many other applications. The new Highline panels are 1 3/8-in. deep, resulting in dramatic building exteriors and deeper shadow lines than the original Precision Series HWP, which is 7/8-in. deep.

The Highline wall panels showcase a range of rib patterns for visual interest and architectural creativity. Options include either 12-in. or 16-in. widths, a no-clip panel, or a clip-fastened panel to accommodate thermal expansion and contraction. Highline panels can be specified with perforations for bold aesthetics or application as equipment screens, and can be installed horizontally or vertically.

Highline panels are available in the following materials: .032, .040 and .050 aluminum, plus 24 and 22 gauge steel. Maximum length is 30-ft. for steel and 22-ft. for aluminum. All gauges and lengths are covered by a 30-year finish warranty.

The Highline series was introduced in two phases: Phase one included four panels in 2016, and phase two included three additional panels in 2017. Phase two also included the renaming of the seven new panels, which are now called the Highline series.

The Highline series is available in all 45 of Petersen’s PAC-CLAD colors, 32 of which meet Energy Star requirements, and 30 of which are Cool Roof certified. The panels qualify for LEED points, and meet various testing and approval standards.
