To resolve the dispute, the old building was preserved—and is now an historic landmark—while the new building was constructed close by. Among the materials used for the new school’s construction were insulated metal wall panels from Metl-Span.

Searching for a perfect material to cover the roof and walls of the new Earl of Derby and Lord Sefton grandstands at historic Aintree racecourse in England, a British design firm put its money on Corus Building Systems' new Kalzip XT aluminum standing seam.
