Metl-Span Walls Score For BYU Athletic Facility

A massive new indoor athletic practice facility at Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah, utilizes more than 40,000 sq. ft. of Metl-Span’s CF36A architectural flat wall panels.

The $20 million facility measures 222’ x 422’ with a clear height of 86’ at the center.

The 2” thick Metl-Span panels were installed horizontally and comprise the top half of the wall area.  The lower portion is constructed of concrete masonry, which is consistent with other buildings on the campus.  The exterior facing of the 22 gauge non-profiled insulated panels is finished with custom color Fortress Stone; the interior facing is Mesa profiled with Polar White siliconized polyester coating.

“The Metl-Span panels were a natural choice to work with the materials system.  The custom color blended well with masonry,” according to Derek Payne, project manager for VCBO Architecture, Salt Lake City.  “And the panels helped reduce heat loss and gain within the building.  The thermal properties are excellent.”

The huge project was a joint venture of Span Construction & Engineering, Medera, CA, and Okland Construction, Salt Lake City.  VP Buildings, Memphis, TN provided the pre-engineered steel framing system.  The metal roof was provided by  AEP-Span, West Sacramento, CA.

Metl-Span pioneered many of the developments of insulated metal panels and continues to make significant contributions to design innovations and technology that have become industry standards.  For more information on the complete line of  Metl-Span products, call 877-585-9969 or visit
