This memorable project features a flexible and lively campus for its diverse community. The 81,000 sq ft school includes classrooms, a gymnasium, student support facilities, and music rooms. A key feature of the design is a central second-floor library, designed to act as a safe and inspiring haven for students.
The building features a combination of AEP Span’s Flex Series® metal siding panels to create a distinct design. The colors used were AEP Span’s specialty finish, Burnt Rust finish and standard Metallic Champagne to provide warm colors that connects the building to the surrounding grove of mature trees. These finishes, paired with the varied lines of the Flex Series panels, add texture and shadow to the modern, functional design. Burnt Rust was the preferred finish for this project as it provides the fresh rust glow of a traditional oxidized product without any of the long-term maintenance issues, such as rust runoff or staining. Metal roofing and siding is perfect for educational buildings as it’s low maintenance, durable and lasts over 50 years!
