CENTRIA’s Concept Series rainscreen panels featuring MicroSeam® Corners and MicroLine™ Extrusions were specified to modernize the newest Golden State Lumber outlet in Concord, Calif. The first building of its kind, the 75,454 square-foot facility includes 7,000 square feet of retail space and a 44,400 square-foot indoor, drive-through lumberyard.
The new facility allows Golden State Lumber customers to drive their vehicles directly into the warehouse for continued business operations in any conditions, while simultaneously ensuring that product is not left exposed to the elements. The building was designed to be modern, user-friendly, and to generate a more accessible feel to an industrial structure.
“The CENTRIA products were selected for Golden State Lumber because they provided the clean look, color, and width flexibility that we wanted,” said Ariana Chan, Job Captain and Architect with MBH Architects, the firm responsible for the design. “The panels are also durable and easy to install – both qualities were attractive to us for this project.”
CENTRIA Concept Series single-skin rainscreen panels incorporate concealed fasteners to provide a sleek, unbroken appearance with exceptional aesthetic versatility. Utilized in three distinct colors and profiles, the metal panels elevated the industrial nature of the facility’s façade, just as the client desired.
The project features Concept Series CS-620, CS-630, and CS-660 profiles which are made with innovative common-lock joinery to allow for seamless integration and smooth or ribbed profiles for dramatic wall relief.
“The varieties of color and form of the Concept Series panels allowed us to achieve the look we had envisioned,” Chan added.
The addition of CENTRIA’s MicroSeam Corners® design option produces virtually seamless corners without the use welding or rivets, while MicroLine Extrusions create clean joints and narrow, crisp lines for an ultra-contemporary look.
The Golden State Lumber facility was completed in June, 2017. The general contractor was Advanced Building Solutions, Inc. The CENTRIA Dealer was Blackwood Associates, and the project installer was Krauter Auto-Stak.
