The Project

The office building at Spring St. in Long Beach, CA is ready for occupants with updated interior spaces and an attention-grabbing exterior. 710 m2 of Tapered Series Panels and standard Dri-Design Panels in Bone White and Medium Gray colors were installed. Tapered Series Panels create a truly one-of-a-kind facade because they can be angled in any direction to varying degrees and depths. This design freedom happens without the need to modify the substrate or weather barrier.

The Dri-Design panels were specifically selected for their beautiful aesthetic and are what drove the design of the building exterior," says Julia Carroll, project manager with Irvine, CA-based Ware Malcomb, the project architect. "The ability to tilt the panels in different directions inspired the visual effect of the fluttering wall, mimicking the panels moving in the wind.
Retrofit projects often have obstacles because of existing conditions, and this building had uneven exterior walls. The Dri-Design panels’ lightweight aluminum construction allowed for the needed flexibility of substrate to correct the issue. Dale Gronewold, president of Emerald Metal Products, says, “The existing building leaned over 5 cm, so we had to add tapered hat channel furring to make everything straight."
