At first, city officials weren’t sold on the use of metal in the design of the civic center, thinking it would give the building an industrial look. However, once they saw the different colors and textures the design team was going to use, their concerns went away.
Design materials include Kingspan insulated metal panels, fiber cement panels and fiber cement planks that provide different looks and textures. Regardless of the façade materials, the KarrierPanel is there to provide a high level of energy efficiency by eliminating thermal-bridging energy losses associated with standard stud/cavity insulation construction.
A community center, office and space for local residents to gather, the Edgewater Civic Center was created to stand the test of time.
