Lakeview Elementary School, O’Fallon, Mo.
People: Architect, Horner and Associates, St. Louis; roofing contractor, Industrial Sheet Metal, Saint Charles, Mo.; distributor, American Metals Supply, Fenton, Mo.
Products: The new building at this school features a roof from Atas International in Allentown, Pa. The regal blue roof is 61,318 square feet of 24-gauge steel Dutch Seam MRD150 panels. A metal fascia was created from Design Wall DWF120 panels. The panels are 24-gauge steel in regal blue, and 2,434 square feet was installed. The soffits consist of 7,015 square feet of Wind-Lok Soffit MPS120 0.032-inch aluminum panels in bone white and 1,878 square feet of vented Wind-Lok Soffit MPV120 0.032-inch aluminum panels, also in bone white.
Fine points: For this renovation project, the architect was asked to add eight classrooms to the existing school to ease classroom constraints created by population growth in the district. The roof of the expansion was designed to add visual interest to the school. Dutch Seam is a structural continuous standing seam panel with an integral seam designed for roof slopes of 2:12 and greater. With lock and seam an integral part of the panel, there are no caps to install. This prevents blow-off or creeping of the cap or seam. Mechanical field seaming of the panel is not required. The panel can just be snapped onto the previously installed panel, the clip fastened, and the panel is in place. Dutch Seam can be fastened directly to purlins or solid substrate.
