Metl-Span Panels Make The Grade As Prototype For New School
The newly constructed P.M. Wells Charter School in Kissimme, FL links three individual buildings utilizing a pre-engineered frame under 60,000 square feet of Metl-Span’s CFR-42 polyurethane foam insulated, standing seam roof panels.
The design/build project serves as a prototype for additional school projects according to Ken Duncan, project manager for the general contractor, The Haskell Company, Jacksonville, Florida.
“We’d had previous successful experience with Metl-Span panels through our work with extremely large industrial coolers. Since we also do a lot of school and institutional work, we intended the use of the material on P.M. Wells as a prototype,” Duncan said. “And we weren’t disappointed. We’ll recommend it again where appropriate.”
Duncan particularly liked the all-in-one aspect of the panels. “They go up quick,” he said. “And the exposed exterior skin looks good.”
Architectural Creations, Inc., Maitland, FL installed the 3” roof panels. Metl-Span CFR-42 is the newest innovation in single step, factory insulated composite panel design.
Metl-Span pioneered the development 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 www.metlspan.com.
