Union Station Starbucks

ALPOLICĀ® / Mitsubishi Chemical America

With the backing of the world’s largest coffeehouse chain behind in, no efforts were spared to ensure the Washington, DC Union Station Starbucks location was inviting. But given the high traffic volume, its finishes also had to be durable. Seeking a reliable and aesthetically pleasing finish for both the interior and exterior walls, the in-house designers at Starbucks employed ALPOLIC ACM panels for a much-desired clean and modern look.

It was for reasons related to both appearance and longevity that fabricators from Arlington, WA’s Bestworth-Rommel cited ALPOLIC as the obvious choice. Overcoming two of ACM’s biggest enemies, delamination and finish failure, ALPOLIC remains robust and dependable.

Additionally, in the unlikely event of damage to the material, ALPOLIC’s renowned warranty provides comfort. As stated by Bestworth-Rommel, “Backed by a company the size of Mitsubishi, and supported by a history of actually honoring the warranty, ALPOLIC is alone in its class.”

The ALPOLIC product utilized on the project was the company’s standard 4mm-thick material featuring a Champagne Metallic paint finish.
