Products: More than 30,000 square feet of metal material in two different systems from Citadel Architectural Products in Indianapolis was utilized in exterior and interior applications. Approximately 24,000 square feet of Citadel’s Envelope 2000 metal composite material (MCM) finished in bone white clads the three-story structure. The panels were installed using the Reveal (RV) System, a field-assembled attachment method that uses perimeter moldings. The new facility connects to the existing courthouse and jail via an overhead walkway, whose interior uses approximately 6,000 square feet of Citadel’s Panel 15 system. Panel 15 is an economical system with a textured aluminum face, wood core and foil scrim backer.
Fine Points: The 61,000-square-foot facility provides state-of-the-art courtrooms and administrative space. The RV system’s joints give a crisp look and the panels themselves are stiff and don’t oil can. Because the RV system is field-cut, the installation team was able to get the material into the field very quickly and get started on the job.
