Country Inn & Suites, State College, Pa.

The Country Inn & Suites in State College, Pa., was designed by Ponder and Ponder Architects, Norcross, Ga., after the firm received a prototype design. The hotel's corporate look stems from 903 square feet of 0.032-inch Dutch Seam (MRD150) aluminum standing seam roof panels in Rock Grey from ATAS International Inc., Allentown, Pa. In addition to meeting corporate considerations, the design team chose a local manufacturer for sustainability and cost containment. Harchuck Construction, Apollo, Pa., was the general contractor; ABC Supply Co., Harrisburg, Pa., was the roofing distributor; and UDC Design, State College, installed the roofing panels.
