Rockford Cardiology Associates, Ltd., Rockford, IL, was previously scattered throughout an aging building that offered no potential for the growing practice. P-G Architecture Design/Build, Rockford, was chosen to assist the physician group with all aspects of internal and external design and construction.
The 53,000 sq. ft. facility is clad with high performance glass and more than 19,000 sq. ft. of PVDF painted aluminum wall panels finished in Silver Mica and Weathered Zinc Mica.
The project was P-G Architecture’s first experience with our metal panel system according to principal-in-charge Rod Gustafson. “After the basic interior plan was resolved, we looked at various options for the exterior,” Gustafson said. “We did a cost analysis of materials including EIFS, precast, brick, glass and metal. The metal panel system was extremely cost effective plus it clearly delivered the high-tech look we were seeking to portray the high technology services being offered within.”
