University Of Texas – Dallas Student Housing Living/Learning Center II

Petersen Aluminum

Approximately 3,000 linear feet of Petersen’s new PAC Anchor-Tite Coping was utilized in straight and radius applications on the new University of Texas at Dallas Student Housing Living/Learning Center II in Richardson, TX.

The 150,000 sq. ft. building will accommodate students and staff in 144 suites with a total of 450 beds. The cornerstone of the design is a circular, multi-story common lounge and amenity area.

The circular area utilized 1,524 linear feet of .050 Silver Metallic PAC Anchor-Tite Quickloc Radius Coping in a variety of custom applications. Walls widths ranged from 9” to 20.5” and fabrication included custom T-transitions, inline transitions and radiused corners.

In addition, 1,560 linear feet of straight PAC Anchor-Tite Coping was also installed.

Installation of the Petersen coping was done by American Roofing & Sheet Metal, Dallas.

Design for the project was provided by Jacobs Engineering Group, Fort Worth, TX. The general contractor was Hill & Wilkinson General Contractors, Richardson, TX.
