With custom color requirements and an aesthetic desire for a variety of profiles, Morin, a Kingspan Group Company became the supplier of choice.</p> <div> <div><img width="164" height="246" src="/media/115497/_MG_4451_164x246.jpg" alt=" MG 4451" style="float: left;"/>The site of a former Army supply depot hosts this new 85,000 square foot LEED Gold fresh food distribution facility, the first of five buildings planned for the development of the San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market. The aim of Jackson Liles Architecture of San Francisco was to develop a design that “expresses itself through the use of exposed concrete tilt-up panels and a profiled aluminum skin.” The facility is designed for long-term durability and flexibility with large open high bay warehouse space with contiguous office space on the second level.</div> <div></div> <div>“We were striving for a unique look at the main entrance,” says Brian Liles,AIA, Principal at Jackson Liles Architecture. “We wanted a lighter feel on the second level and a variety of textures on the longer sides of the building. Metal siding was a clear choice to achieve these goals and contrast well with the other concrete elements of the exterior. This is the first time we worked with Morin and we were really able to take advantage of their entire suite of products.”</div> <div></div> <div>MORIN’s MR-36 panel, a 3-inch deep ribbed 36-inch panel in .032-inch aluminum was the most prominent profile specified. Approximately 5,000 square feet of the MR-36 in Tomato Red helps identify the main entrance – Tomato Red was a custom color MORIN was able provide in order to match the large loading dock doors along the side of the building. Above the loading dock doors, 13,000 square feet of MR-36 panels in Damask (a shade of off-white) were installed. MORIN’s VB-36, a 1-inch ribbed panel covering 36 inches, was installed at the building corners and between second-floor windows, in the contrasting color of Porous Stone. The smaller-ribbed VB-36 panels, in Tomato Red, were used as an accent panel around select doorways.</div> <div></div> <div>“It’s a clean and refined industrial aesthetic,” Liles says. “The panels contributed to achieving LEED Gold status, due to their life cycle expectancy and because they are manufactured with a high amount of recycled product. Overall, it was a cost-effective solution that enhanced the project design.”</div> <div></div> <div>Installation of the wall panels was handled by West Coast Architectural Sheet Metal of San Jose, Calif. “We snapped control lines on the building, both horizontally and vertically, to ensure the panels would be in alignment,” project manager Jason Boyd says. “Once the panels are laid out on the building, we start pre-drilling and cutting them down to the proper length, but only if we have to order before we can field measure. Then we install, making sure we hit the control lines. We had three different profiles on the exterior that didn’t align, so keeping the reveals consistent was paramount.”</div> <div></div> <div>Boyd says the installation was completed without a hitch. “We had finished concrete to drive the scissor lifts on and nobody else was in our way,” he says. “Wish they were all like that.”</div> <div></div> <div> <div><strong>About Morin, A Kingspan Group Company</strong> Morin, a Kingspan Group Company, is one of the industry's most versatile manufacturers of single element metal wall and roof panel systems.

(May 19, 2015) – The design goal for the 620 Veterans Boulevard Radius Apartments was to present a luxurious residential community through the use of a variety of products, including metal wall panels from Morin, A Kingspan Group</div> <div>Company.</div> <div></div> <div>The 264-unit luxury apartments in Redwood City, Calif., consisted of two wood-framed apartment buildings with above-ground parking. The project’s façade incorporated a predominantly stucco exterior, with brick, fiber cement siding and aluminum siding and soffit accents. A dramatic architectural steel canopy extends over the private road entrance, forming a visual gateway up to the landscaped podium decks.</div> <div></div> <div></div> <div>“We went with steel on the corners for a sleek look,” says Alex Koulouris, senior associate at BDE Architecture in San Francisco. “The panels were chosen for their simplicity and clean lines, as opposed to a corrugated look of other metal products.”</div> <div></div> <div>In addition to the apartments with high-end finishes, the LEED-certified community offers many attractive amenities, including a fitness center, pool, spa, recreation room, outdoor barbecues and seating area as well as a dog park.</div> <div></div> <div>BDE associate Grant Weaver, who works on many of the firm’s multifamily projects with Koulouris and president Jonathan Ennis, says the metal wall panels brought a refined appearance to the project. “In the end, the use of metal helped pronounce the corners of the two buildings,” he says. “It brought a more distinguished aesthetic to a residential project than other material choices could have. The metal helps break up the massing in a project of this stature. It’s not a singular box, it has shadows and variations in material, with metal, stucco and brick.”</div> <div></div> <div><img width="262" height="394" src="/media/97963/Radius-Apt-07_262x394.jpg" alt="Radius Apt 07" style="float: left;"/>Alumawall of San Jose, Calif., installed three different MORIN profiles: XC-12 .040-inch aluminum panels in 1.0 mil Weathered Zinc; XG-12 .040-inch aluminum panels in 1.0 mil Weathered Zinc; and F-12-0 .040-inch aluminum</div> <div>in 1.0 mil Silversmith.

(April 28, 2015) – Architecturally unique projects like the San Jose High School Career Technology Engineering Building only come together when everyone involved is on the same page. Morin, A Kingspan Group Company, helped make it work for the architectural and construction teams.</div> <div></div> <div>“This is the project that actually pushed our company in the direction of taking on more challenging projects,” said Louie Rua, president of Rua and Son Mechanical. “We specialize in these types of projects now. I like the challenging projects.”</div> <div></div> <div>The new 13,000 square foot Career Technology Engineering Building showcases an open, industrial character that encourages exploration, collaboration and risk taking. The building’s organization is dominated by a three-story cylindrical exhibition lobby with a sloped octagon-shaped roof. That lobby connects the five classrooms and an engineering lab on two levels. It also opens through a series of doors to a small courtyard, allowing exhibitions and activities to flow outdoors. San Jose High School’s CTE Building was constructed to implement the curriculum of Project Lead the Way.</div> <div></div> <div><img width="198" height="297" src="/media/97969/2-San-Jose-High-TBI-Construction-All-Other-Photos-Not-Printed-98_198x297.jpg" alt="2 San Jose High TBI Construction All Other Photos Not Printed 98" style="float: left;"/>“It was a fun project,” says Julio Lucas, AIA, who at the time of design was with Artik Art &amp; Architecture of San Jose. “A big part of the inspiration came from the building being a career technology facility, it’s a learning tool and that was the inspiration.”</div> <div>Lucas said a nearby historic building, originally the San Jose Steel plant, helped him decide on using metal for the San Jose High School CTE Building. “Metal helps us break away from what many designers have become so comfortable with, the stucco or concrete buildings,” he says. “The exposed fasteners were by choice and not an economical decision. We wanted to expose how the building was put together, not hide the fasteners.”</div> <div></div> <div>Rua and Son installed a variety of product from MORIN, including wall and roofing panels, while fabricating flat stock for use as soffits, gutters, downspouts and various trim work. MORIN supplied 11,500 square feet of its Y-36 22-gauge Galvalume corrugated panels in Champagne Bronze and 9,500 square feet of SLR-18 22-gauge Galvalume roofing panels in Seafoam Green Mica. For 22-gauge flat stock material, MORIN delivered 2,420 square feet of Champagne Bronze and 3,830 square feet of Seafoam Green Mica. The project also required 2,400 square feet of MORIN’s F-12 22-gauge Galvalume panel in Seafoam Green Mica.</div> <div></div> <div>“Katia (Griggs, MORIN’s west coast representative) was instrumental in pulling this project together,” Rua says. “She got us what we needed when we needed it.</div> <div></div> <div>“This project was a challenge bringing the four different components together,” Rua said. “The soffits, the corrugated panels, the roofing and the (brick red) Dri-Design panels … it was a real outside-the-box project.”</div> <div></div> <div>Rua said the key was being able to work hand-in-hand with architect Julia Lucas during the three months the teams were at the jobsite.</div> <div></div> <div><strong>About Morin, A Kingspan Group Company</strong></div> <div>Morin, a Kingspan Group Company, is one of the industry's most versatile manufacturers of single element metal wall and roof panel systems.

(April 7, 2015) – No matter how strong the desire to keep moving forward, it’s best not to lose touch with the past. The design of the Channel Mission Bay apartments in San Francisco was able to merge the area’s history with its future through the use of products from Morin, A Kingspan Group Company.</div> <div></div> <div>“The underlying theme was to look back at the history of the sites,” says Matt Cindrich, AIA, at Ankrom Mosian Associates. “This area served as a major transportation hub and it had seen better days. It’s now enjoying a resurgence, it’s a center to Internet businesses and biomedical research. There’s a new life emerging in the city.”</div> <div></div> <div>Channel Mission Bay provides San Francisco with 315 new market-rate apartments. The concrete superstructure consists of a six-story half and an eight-story half. The sixstory portion has a primarily brick exterior with areas of standing seam metal panel and punched window openings. The eight-story section primarily has flush metal siding and punched window openings, all framed by white metal panel.</div> <div></div> <div>“Ankrom Moisan’s vision for its client’s large 89,000 square foot parcel called Block 2, was to create two distinct building identities,” Cindrich says. “One a silhouette of the city’s future and the other a reflection of a past it doesn’t entirely want to let go of.”</div> <div></div> <div><img width="211" height="132" src="/media/113628/Channel_Mission-Bay-29_211x132.jpg" alt="Channel Mission Bay 29" style="float: left;"/>Cindrich says the focus of the color selections for the metal wall panels revolved around the history of the neighborhood – red and brown brick warehouse buildings, industrial rusty metal colors, “to play up the idea of 100 years of life.” The colors are different, but subtly different, so you really can’t even notice until you get closer to the building. Cindrich was trying to create an “irregular pattern.”</div> <div></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div>The color choices for the various MORIN products were Turkish Coffee, Polished Mahogany, Standard Bone White and Standard Blue Gray. Turkish Coffee was used for 5,386 square feet of F-12-0 Concealed Fastener wall panels, 3,112 square feet of F-16-0 Concealed Fastener wall panels and 884 square feet of F-18-0 Concealed Fastener wall panels. Polished Mahogany was specified for 1,007 square feet of the F-12-0, 1,203 square feet of the F-16-0 and 445 square feet of the F-18-0 Concealed Fastener wall panels.</div> <div></div> <div>“This was the first time we had to mix and match colors and sizes while installing wall panels,” says Lance Blanchard, project manager for Valley Sheet Metal of San Francisco. “It all went well because the panels were packaged, palletized and delivered in the sequence we needed them. Morin even color-coded the packages for us by different floors, areas and elevations.”</div> <div></div> <div>Blanchard says the biggest challenge was a lack of storage and staging space. “It’s right in downtown San Francisco, so there’s not a lot of room to spread out, store materials and layout materials,” he said. “We work almost exclusively with MORIN products and prefer to do so. That comfort level helped us overcome some of the other challenges.”</div> <div></div> <div><strong>About Morin, A Kingspan Group Company</strong></div> <div>Morin, a Kingspan Group Company, is one of the industry's most versatile manufacturers of single element metal wall and roof panel systems.

It was a funky design, a checkerboard pattern.”</div> <div></div> <div><img width="171" height="254" src="/media/97949/Creed-Monarch2_171x254.jpg" alt="Creed Monarch2" style="float: left;"/>MORIN’s F-12 concealed fastener panels were installed</div> <div>vertically – 10 rows of eight-foot panels.

The F-12 panels are 12 inches wide with a panel depth of 1-1/2 inches. MORIN offers the F-12, and most of its products, in Galvalume/Zincalume, aluminum, stainless steel, zinc and copper.</div> <div></div> <div>Kensington Glass of Berlin, Conn., installed the F-12 concealed fastener wall panels. According to project manager Frank Carfora, it was the first time his crew had ever installed panels from MORIN and it required no special training. “We were called in because the east side of the tower had to be installed with swing staging and we’ve got all our own equipment,” Carfora said. “We’ve worked with similar products, but this is the first time with MORIN panels. The product came shipped properly, we didn’t have any damage so we didn’t have to re-order any extra pieces.” Carfora said the only challenge in the four-week project came when the drawings were changed half-way through the installation to accommodate some company signage.</div> <div></div> <div>“We had to take about 20 pieces down and move them over, but it was pretty easy.

The 0.050-inch aluminum concealed fastener wall panels were treated with a clear anodized Class I finish system.

With the contrast, we were able to work with the installers to mix up the shades to give the walls some character.

Municipal Complex were searching for a metal panel that provided an aesthetic that worked with the mostly brick design. They found it in the offerings from Morin, A Kingspan Group Company.</div> <div></div> <div>“Honestly, the reason we went with MORIN had a lot to do with the profile,” said Chris Drobat, AIA, LEED AP, president of Lavallee Brensinger Architects, Manchester, N.H. “The MORIN (Matrix Series®) panel has a square edge compared to what other manufacturers offer. The look of the panel created nice shadow lines. With other panels, we couldn’t get that straight contrast. It’s got depth, when you get close to it, you can see it’s a rich panel. That was the primary driver that led us to MORIN.”</div> <div></div> <div style="text-align: left;"><img width="500" height="749" src="/media/97907/Manchester_Complex4_500x749.jpg" alt="Manchester Complex4" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"/> <div>Drobat noticed some other buildings on campus had a “corduroy” appearance and the MX 1.0 wall panel, installed vertically,provided that desired look. “It’s a durable panel and with the height of the bends and the metallic finish, it gave the building a refined look,” he said. “It’s durable and cost-effective.”</div> <div>The MX 1.0 panel, in 22-gauge Galvalume, was installed on both the Administration Building (6,400 square feet) and the Police Station (6,250 square feet). MORIN’s F-12-S panels were also used on both buildings as accent pieces; 150 square feet in 22-gauge Galvalume on the Administration building and 600 square feet in 22-gauge Galvalume around the windows on the Police Station. The color for all MORIN panels used on this project was Silversmith Mica.</div> <div>“This was the first time we’ve worked with this MORIN panel,” said Brian Hoey, project manager for Brookside Co. Inc. “The side joints were similar to other panels we’ve worked with, so it went together easily. And looks great.”</div> <div>The panels were installed by Bennett Siding Inc. of Londonderry,N.H., over newly installed insulation and furring.</div> <div>The MX 1.0 panel has a depth of 1-1/2 inches and is 12 inches wide. It’s available in standard lengths measuring anywhere from 5 to 30 feet.

Capitol West has become a new urban landmark in Madison and an aesthetic benchmark for urban developments throughout the country.</div> <div></div> <div></div> <div>MORIN Exposed Fastener Metal Wall Panels are designed into every type of building today, from industrial manufacturing plants to Class A office buildings. The Capitol West Condo project chose 7,245 square feet of the 22-gauge Galvalume Morin C29 7/8 traditional sine wave C profile with its overlapping side joint design in Medium Silver Classic for the majority of the horizontal metal panel application.</div> <div></div> <div></div> <div>The MORIN Integrity Series is an integrated concealed fastener wall panel system with an asymmetrical shape created by the well-known Japanese architect Fumihiko Maki in the early 1990’s. The common joint design allows for multiple panel integration. The Capitol West project called for 2,400 square feet of 22-gauge Galvalume Integrity Series Metal Wall Panel XC-12 in Light Silver Classic Color to slightly contrast the look of the Exposed Fastener panels.</div> <div></div> <div></div> <div>An additional exposed fastener metal wall panel designed into the Capitol West project is Morin’s BR-28. MORIN fabricated approximately 4,500 square feet of 22-gauge Galvalume in a stunning Copper Classic II color. Installed in a horizontal orientation, it makes for an exceptional contrast of color. MORIN Mitered Corners further enhanced the visual experience. Miter-seam style corners utilize structurally bonded construction and because they are fabricated from the same material as the adjacent panels, a color match is assured.</div> <div></div> <div></div> <div>Installation of the MORIN panels was handled by SRS Roofing and Sheet Metal of Waterford, Wis.</div> <div></div> <div></div> <div>“Our only real challenge was access,” says Brad Decker, sheet metal estimator for SRS Roofing and Sheet Metal. “Because of the height of the building we were suspended down from the roof, like a window washer, instead of using a boom lift. We’ve worked with Morin products before, so the installation went well. We’ve installed MORIN products on other projects and have more coming up.”</div> <div></div> <div></div> <div>Rooftop terraces and gardens, as well as pedestrian mews, help to create an urban neighborhood just two blocks from the Wisconsin State Capitol. Encompassing an entire city block,the site boasts a 151-room Hyatt Place hotel and 92,500 square feet of commercial space.

The design goal was for the building to have a look to contrast with its surroundings while reflecting the beauty of the natural habitat. Tzu Chen, AIA, of BBH Design in Raleigh, N.C., specified screened wall panels to help achieve the aesthetic goals, all while staying under budget. Screen wall panels minimize the amount of sunlight and UV rays hitting vehicles inside. MORIN provided its MR-36S stainless steel perforated screened wall panels for the project. Stainless steel offers a resistance to corrosion and staining, low maintenance and a look that will not change like some metals. “We produced two different perforation patterns for the screen walls,” says MORIN Regional Sales Manager Daniel Davenport. “One was large and the other smaller to best show a contrast between the panels. “And because the panels are stainless steel, they provide a life-cycle cost benefit.”</div> <div><img width="180" height="120" src="/media/10092/WTCC-PD-20sm.jpg" alt="WTCC PD 20Sm" style="float: left;"/>MORIN’s perforated exposed or concealed fastener panels offer open area ranging from 10 to 40 percent, creating the effect of a translucent screen to provide passive solar shading, control light and sound pollution, air movement or simply obscure building contents. Panels may be installed vertically, horizontally or even diagonally, based upon design. “The biggest thing is that the panels were able to meet the structural requirements,” Davenport says. The MR-36S profile features a 3-inch rib for strength. Four panels together formed each screen, measuring 12x48 feet. The original plan was to install the perforated screen wall on only three sides of the parking deck, strictly as a cost-saving measure. The client insisted on installing the MR-36S screened wall panels on the fourth side, the side that faces the wooded area and the campus. It turned out to be economically feasible.</div> <div>“First of all, we had to stay within the project cost,” Chen says. “Those panels were going to have to cover a lot of area, so we were trying to keep the cost down. And where the parking deck is located, it’s a natural environment, there’s a forest on one side. The MR-36S contrasted the environment, but reflected the environment. When the sky changes, it’s reflected in the panels.” Approximately 20,000 square feet of the MR-36S screen wall was installed by Rodriguez Glass of Durham, N.C. About three-fourths of the screen wall had perforations allowing for 40 percent open area. Most of the remaining screen wall was perforated to allow for 10 percent open area. MORIN offers seven different performation styles for screen wall panels.</div> <div></div> <div>About Morin - A Kingspan Group Company</div> <div>Morin, a Kingspan Group Company, is one of the industry's most versatile manufacturers of single-skin (also known as single element) metal wall and roof panel systems.

Sustainability was a driving force on the project, which is expected to receive the USGBC's LEED Silver certification. Metal was selected for its light weight, forgiving nature to seismic movement, timesaving installation, recycled content, recyclability and low maintenance.
