Norton Brownsboro Hospital is the first new full-service hospital to open in the Louisville, KY area in more than 20 years. The five-story, 298,000 square foot facility features the latest in healthcare technology and an innovative patient and family-centered care model.
Approximately 58,000 sq. ft. of Metl-Span CF Architectural Flat 2” and 3” insulated wall panels, finished in Antique Bronze and Oyster, are featured on the exterior of the $146 million facility. The Metl-Span panels were installed both horizontally and vertically.
The project was designed by Karlsberger Architecture, Inc., Columbus, OH. The firm detailed a variety of metal panels that complement one another and the masonry as well.
The Metl-Span panels were installed by ProCLAD, Inc., Noblesville, IN. Metl-Span’s ability to provide a variety of panel modules was an important factor, according to project manager Steve Miller. “Due to the design of the project and the alignment of the joints with the windows and curtainwall, it was difficult to get a standard module panel to work with the layout. Metl-Span’s flexibility to produce different module panels was a key factor,” according to Miller.
The budget for the project was an important factor in selecting Metl-Span, too. “The cost of Metl-Span allowed us to be very competitive in our bid,” Miller said.
The general contractor on the project was Messer/TMG, Louisville, KY.
