Fifth Sun Graphics in Chico, CA, is a 42,000 sq. ft. facility that combines offices and warehouse space in one facility.
The project used Open Web framing by VP Buildings. In addition, VP’s SLR architectural/structural standing seam roofing in a Colonial Red color is featured on the roof, along with Classic Beige-colored Panel Rib metal wall panels and TextureClad panels.
TextureClad combines the rich look of textured stucco with the strength and durability of 20 gauge steel to create a lightweight, easy-to-install, exterior wall system. Panels are designed to meet the demands of local building ordinances where traditional metal wall panels are prohibited. The finish is resistant to water, cracking, flaking, chalking, and mildew and backed with a 20-year warranty. TextureClad panels can be attached directly to standard wall girts with up to 6" of batt insulation and also work great as a soffit.
The VP Buildings authorized builder was Modern Building Co., Chico, CA. The designer was Russell Gallaway Associates, Chico, CA. The project was completed in October 2007.
