Star Building Systems provided three metal building systems to construct The Gathering shopping center in Port Arthur, Texas.Star Building Systems provided three metal building systems to construct The Gathering shopping center in Port Arthur, Texas. The 14,004-square-foot project includes an entryway, main shopping building and coffee shop.

The walls were built with insulated metal panels and, at two corners, horizontal, aluminum accent panels that look like wood. Ron Cleveland Construction Co. LLC installed 8,022 square feet of Mel-Span's 2-inch-thick Tuff Wall insulated metal panels (IMP) for the walls. The IMPs have a 24-gauge exterior in Textured White and 26-gauge interior in Igloo White. Ron Cleveland Construction installed 8 inches of additional, un-faced insulation in the walls to make them R-40.3. Additionally, 1-inch-thick, high-impact windows and wind-rated doors were utilized.

Ron Cleveland Construction constructed the single-slope roof with 11,857 square feet of MBCI's 24-gauge Galvalume Plus Double-Lok standing seam roof system. The roof was insulated to R-32.

The shopping center's entryway to the main shopping building features a 1-foot, 4-inch slim-line canopy at the high and low sides, and at the endwalls. The entrance canopy has MBCI's Artisan L12 metal soffit panels in Snow White. A second canopy, below-eave, was constructed with 24-gauge steel, support beams and decorative columns to cover a walkway that wraps around the main shopping building. The project was completed in November 2015.
