Health Care

Center for Advanced Medicine & Surgery, Canton, Mich.

St. Joseph Mercy Health Center in Canton, Mich. has opened the Center for Advanced Medicine & Surgery. The 53,000-square-foot outpatient facility offers a variety of advanced services.

Several profiles from Elk Grove Village, Ill.-based Petersen Aluminum Corp. were selected to meet the design objectives for the $20 million project. Approximately 13,200 square feet of 24-gauge, 18-inch Snap-Clad panels were utilized on the main portion of the roof, in addition to 3,800 square feet of 24-gauge, 16-inch Tite-Loc panels utilized to clad the barrel roof and entrance canopy. Additionally, approximately 2,800 square feet of 12-inch Flush panels were used for soffit and trim applications; while Composite wall panels were used in fascia and column cover applications. All panels were finished in Hemlock Green.

Installation of the Petersen panels was done by Lutz Roofing Co., Shelby Township, Mich. "The radius panels were long-60 feet. The challenge was getting them up to the roof," remarks Jim Borgiel, project manager. "And, of course, we had a tight timeframe but we're accustomed to that. The job turned out great."

HKS Architects, Farmington Hills, Mich., was the architect, and George W. Auch Co., Pontiac, Mich., was the general contractor.
