FlightSafety International

Citadel Architectural Products Inc.

With nearly 10 acres under roof and 40,000 square feet of office space, FlightSafety International’s new facility in Broken Arrow, OK is massive. The equipment manufactured at the plant–aircraft flight simulators, visual systems and aeronautical displays–is high-tech. Fittingly, so is the building's look, thanks to little touches like the addition of Citadel ACM panels around the building's entrance.

The design/build project was completed by Crossland Construction Company, Columbus, KS on a fast-track schedule that began in June, 2010 and was completed in May, 2011. The structure was pre-cast and structural steel but Citadel’s Envelope 2000® metal composite material (MCM) was used to clad the entryway area. The Gun Metal-colored panels were installed using the Reveal (RV) System, a field assembled attachment method utilizing perimeter moldings.

Core Architects, Rogers, AR collaborated on the project. According to Robert Kelly, president of Core Architects, “Yes, it’s a huge industrial building but we wanted a clean, modern look for the entryway to the reception area and administrative offices. The Citadel panels really helped deliver that look.”

The Citadel sales representative on the project was J.D. Day & Company of Overland Park.
