Texas bank’s metal tiles help create its corporate identity

The headquarters location of Southside Bank in Tyler, Texas, has completed an updated corporate identity program that relies heavily on the use of several PAC-CLAD profiles. Southside, a publicly traded community bank with assets of $7 billion, operates 60 branches throughout Texas.

Design for the renovation and rebranding of the main branch was created by Fitzpatrick Architects in Tyler and establishes design parameters for new construction and future branch updates.

Three PAC-CLAD profiles played prominent roles in the design, including Petersen’s new TS Tile, one of four metal tile profiles in the line of Precision Series Tiles. Approximately 2,000 sq. ft. of the .032 aluminum TS Tiles finished in Anodized Dark Bronze was installed to highlight entryways at the branch. The TS Tile’s 7 ¾-in. x 17 ¼-in. nominal size creates a vertically oriented pattern. The Precision Series Tiles line includes Flat, Cupped, Diamond and TS. The stamped tiles can be applied to roof or wall installations and give designers an alternative to roll-formed panel-style cladding.

Additionally, 10,000 sq. ft. of 22 gauge Snap-Clad panels finished in Slate Gray was used to re-roof the structure. Additionally, PAC-3000 rainscreen composite wall panels in complementary Classic Bronze color were installed in key accent areas.

Installation of the three PAC-CLAD profiles was done by Curtis-McKinley Roofing & Sheet Metal in Longview, Texas.

Through its various locations, Southside Bank has been a long-time user of Petersen products. Clay Snyder, regional sales/technical manager based in Petersen’s manufacturing facility in Tyler, Texas, says, “Virtually all of the Southside branches have had at least some type of PAC-CLAD profile for the past 20 years. Petersen continues as the basis of design for the modernizing design concept for new construction and the renovation of branches. Southside has been quite loyal to us and we’ve been equally loyal to them. It’s a great relationship.”

The general contractor on the project was Riley Harris Construction in Tyler, Texas.
