TBA Studio Architecture APC specified two sizes of insulated metal panels (IMPs) in its modern design for the press box at Joe Aillet Stadium at Louisiana Tech University. The renovation project utilized IMPs that are 12 inches wide by 48 inches long, and 24 inches wide by 96 inches long with 1/2-inch reveals between panels. FL Crane and Sons installed 5,400 square feet of CENTRIA’s 2 1/2-inch-thick Formawall Graphix Type XY IMPs. The project is part of the university's Quest For Excellence program, which includes a camera deck, 27 suites with outdoor seating, a presidential suite, lounge, restrooms and food service space.
