Hestrup and Associates Architects specified neutral colored metal panels to blend in with a light-colored brick exterior on Mooseheart Child City and School Inc. The project is a new school building added to multiple existing educational and residential buildings on a 1,000-acre campus 38 miles west of Chicago. Metal was chosen for durability and longevity.

For the roof, Whited Brothers Inc. installed 9,000 square feet of Petersen Aluminum Corp.’s 0.032-inch aluminum Tite-Loc metal roof panels in 70 percent PVDF Fluoropon Slate Gray.

Whited Brothers installed two types of wall panels: 1,332 square feet of Petersen’s 22-gauge, 1/2-inch and 7/8-inch Corrugated metal wall panels in 70 percent PVDF Fluoropon Bone White, and 1,180 square feet of Petersen’s 0.04-inch aluminum Flush/Reveal metal wall panels in 70 percent PVDF Fluoropon Cityscape. Additionally, Whited Brothers installed Petersen’s 0.125-inch aluminum PAC-1000C Column Covers in 70 percent PVDF Fluoropon Cityscape.
