PAC-CLAD panels streamline both design and schedule for Georgia senior center

The otherwise flat roof of the Lawrenceville Senior Center in Lawrenceville, Ga., features two sweeping arches – one over each of the building’s two wings – that act as a counterpoint to the building’s highly angular façade. A desire to maintain the arches’ sleek, streamlined appearance was critical in the architects’ selection of Petersen’s Tite-Loc Plus panels during a recent reroofing project.

Among the many advantages, Tite-Loc Plus products offer installers is the option for roll-forming the panels, in exceptional lengths, at the jobsite. This proved an important selling point in this time-constrained renovation effort. Designers wanted the 16-in., 24-gauge panels to complete the two arches – with lengths of 110 ft. and 85 ft., respectively in a single run, with no visual interruptions. Installers wanted the flexibility to complete their roll-forming at the jobsite, so panels could be formed and installed on a Saturday, without affecting the center’s busy weekday operations.

In all, 8,000 sq. ft. of Tite-Loc Plus panels in a PAC-CLAD Slate Gray finish now top the Lawrenceville Senior Center. The project was designed by Clark Patterson Lee Architects/Engineers of Suwanee, Ga., and installed by Norcross, Ga.-based Roof Management.
