Metl-Span Panels Selected For New Dallas High School

The new Adamson High School in the north Oak Cliff area of Dallas sets alongside the original, nearly century-old school building that is now an historic landmark.  Following a preservation dispute between the Dallas school district and Adamson High School alumni, the new building has been enthusiastically received by all parties.

The new four-level, 223,000 sq. ft. building is designed to serve 1,300 students in grades 10, 11 and 12.  The building includes areas for a child development program, a students with disabilities program, a student-run coffee shop and the school’s ROTC program.  The site includes new tennis courts and athletic fields.  The campus also includes a historical marker honoring J.D. Tippit, the Dallas police officer shot and killed by presidential assassin Lee Harvey Oswald.

Approximately 27,000 sq. ft. of Metl-Span CF24 Architectural Flat insulated wall panels finished in Autumn Wood and Semolina were utilized.

The Metl-Span panels were installed by Advantage Wall Panel Systems, Corinth, TX.  “Metl-Span did an awesome job in meeting the delivery schedule,” according to Rob Medlin, project manager.  “The project was pretty straight-forward although there were lots of bent corners that were fabricated in our shop.  The job went really well.”

Architectural design for the project was done by Corgan Associates, Dallas.  The general contractor was Satterfield & Pontikes Construction, Inc., Irving, TX.

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