TWO PROFILES OF METL-SPAN PANELS SELECTED FOR NEW ACUTE CARE HOSPITAL
The new Clarian Saxony Medical Center is the first and only hospital in Fishers, Indiana. The medical center includes a 44-bed, 200,000 sq. ft. acute care hospital in addition to a 100,000 sq. ft. medical office building.
Approximately 30,000 sq. ft. of Metl-Span insulated panels in two different profiles were utilized on the project including 18,000 sq. ft. of Metl-Span’s Tuff-Cast™ panels which have the look of finished precast concrete. The 2” panels in Light Gray, Limestone and Surrey Beige offer an exterior finish of Tuff-Cote® fiber-reinforced polymer. In addition, 12,000 sq. ft. of 3” CF-24 and 2” CF-28 Architectural Flat Platinum panels were also included in the design.
Installation of the Metl-Span panels was done by ProCLAD, Inc., Noblesville, IN. According to Brad Hitzfield, president, “This job was a medium complexity project for us due to the longitudinal folds, outside corners, varying panel module widths and the transition between 2” and 3” thick panels. Our in-house engineering empowers us to lay out the complete project and deliver a precise bill of materials to Metl-Span. Metl-Span has always adapted very well to projects with non-standard module widths and custom reveals.”
Per the design, ProCLAD also installed aluminum composite material, vertical profile panels and metal louvers on the medical center. “The Metl-Span insulated panels integrate well with other cladding materials by utilizing custom extrusions and other engineered components to ensure the envelope has limited sealant transitions,” Hitzfield said.
Architectural design for the project was provided by HKS Architects, Dallas.
