The owner’s expectations spurred the design a new tile-wall system that was ultimately patented: Clearview Composite Wall System. The 3-story, 45,256 square foot building’s budget demanded the use of a cost-efficient tilt-wall structure, but the owner objected to the “punched window” appearance of traditional tilt-wall. Together, Metropolitan and the project engineer, Davy Beicker, developed a system for pouring concrete panels on steel columns that, when hoisted, provided a continuous band of uninterrupted glass. The building was situated on 2.5 acres, a site made more efficient by placing the required storm water detention and filtration system under the parking lot. The attractive building was completed in 10 months.
Some of our latest and greatest work.
