Approximately 4,700 sq. ft. of Metl-Span CF Architectural insulated metal wall panels were utilized on the new City of Aurora, IL Fire Station 8. The 2” thick, 24” wide Metl-Span panels were finished in Sandstone.
Installation of the wall panels was done by All American Exterior Solutions, Lake Zurich, IL. “It’s a beautiful fire station,” said Mike Underwood, project manager. “We were provided very nice prefabricated, factory-formed corners that really came out great. The angles were not all 90 degrees—some were 75 and some were 120. Beyond the normal challenge of aligning with the curtain wall system, the installation was really pretty straight-forward.”
The project was designed by PSA-Dewberry in Naperville, IL. The general contractor on the job was R.C. Wegmen Construction, Aurora, IL.
