El Dorado Market Place

Petersen Aluminum

The new El Dorado Market Place in Frisco, TX, is a 400,000 sq. ft. shopping center designed to meet the city’s standards for lasting elements and durability.

More than 31,000 sq. ft. of PAC-CLAD material was used in roof and façade applications including 12,375 sq. ft. of 24 gauge 16” Snap-Clad Panels; 1,260 sq. ft. of 24 gauge 16” Tite Loc Panels used exclusively for curved applications; 5,373 sq. ft. of 24 gauge 11” Flush Panels; and 12,400 sq. ft. of 24 gauge Flat Sheet. All material was finished in Weathered Zinc.

Design for the project was provided by O’Brien & Associates, Dallas. “Frisco has very rigid design criteria for all new construction and wants designs that include lasting elements that are built for durability,” according to David Culbertson, project architect. “We always like to use metal for pitched roofs, awnings and canopies.  And we think metal gives somewhat of a ‘country look’ which was important in this rural area.”

The El Dorado Market Place buildings are mainly concrete tilt wall construction with brick and stone applied as veneer over concrete walls. In some places, the concrete walls were left exposed and painted with an acrylic textured coating.

“The weather in north Texas can be harsh,” Culbertson said. “The Petersen roof is durable and stands up well to the weather. We like it.”

Installation was done by BRI Roofing & Sheet Metal, Haslet, TX. The general contractor on the project was Lee Lewis Construction, Dallas.
