McMahon Group designed a stone and granite countertop manufacturing facility with a retail showroom for Bay Area Granite and Marble in Appleton, Wis., so it would not look like a warehouse. The project utilized 2,028 square feet of McElroy Metal's horizontal, 24-gauge Mega-Rib wall panels with 7.2 PVF in Medium Bronze instead of standard sheeting and stone veneer accents to create the appearance.
