Robert Morris University School of Business


Celli-Flynn Brennan Architects & Planners of Pittsburgh designed Robert Morris University's School of Business to have a strong identity that blends with its historic setting and surrounding buildings. That's one reason why the firm topped the 18,000 sq. ft. building with a metal roof. Because of the roof's challenging design, the firm chose Norcross, GA-based IMETCO to supply the system.

On the Robert Morris' campus in Moon Township, PA, RMU's business school was constructed in 2011 as part of the institution's $40 million "Changing Lives, Building Futures" fundraising initiative. The two-story structure houses the United States Steel Corp. video conferencing and technology center, the ATI Center, PNC Trading Simulation Room, general classrooms, faculty computer lab, student zone, and executive board room and offices for the university president and vice president.

The building's roof form was such that it required tapered metal panels in some places, curved panels in others and an equipment screen over open framing. IMETCO's single source metal roofing solution included SS Panel™ metal roofing used in straight, tapered and curved roofing areas, and PermaLok™ metal roofing for the equipment screens. Handling the installation was  Miller-Thomas-Gyekis, Inc. of Pittsburgh.
