As designed by Kimley-Horne & Associates of Dallas, TX, the new Bellaire Town Square Aquatic Center in Bellaire, TX, is topped with an Architectural Building Components Permaseam roof system. The 16"-wide striated panels were formed from 24-gauge steel with a Hemlock Green paint finish. ARCI Ltd. was the installer and R. Hassell Builders Inc. handled the general contracting duties. Both firms are headquartered in Houston, TX.
Permaseam is a one-piece snap-together architectural panel with structural capabilities. It features a very rigid, 1-¾” tall seam and a 16-gauge hold down clip that allows for unlimited thermal movement. This panel is ideal for solid deck applications on slopes 2:12 and higher. It is ABC's most popular snap-together roof panel. It is easy to install and provides a worry-free roof. Millions of square feet of Permaseam roofing have been installed in all areas of the country on all types of commercial projects such as schools, churches, retail centers, hotels and office buildings. Permaseam can be site formed if the panels are too long to ship.
For outstanding design, construction and craftsmanship, the project received an ABC Job of the Month award for July 2007.
