The new 100,000 sq. ft. Gateway Medical Office Building in Orlando is anchored by Florida Hospital and the University of Central Florida’s Pegasus Health physician practice and clinic. The facility is located in the Lake Nona master-planned community and complements an array of medical services offered in the area known locally as Medical City. Petersen Aluminum panels complement the facility’s design.
The three-story structure utilizes approximately 6,000 sq. ft. of Petersen’s HWP Precision Series Panels installed as horizontal screen wall. The 24 gauge panels were finished in Cityscape Cool Color. The installation was completed by Martin Roofing Services, Orlando.
“This is a popular application for the HWP Panels,” said Dave Landis, Petersen’s architectural/technical sales manager. “We have Florida product approval on the panel and it was specified because it met the architect’s budget while exceeding the wind load requirements for open framing on a screen wall. Martin Roofing was instrumental in getting Petersen on the job in order to deliver a good value.”
Architectural design for the project was provided by Hunton Brady Architects, Orlando.
