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.
