MG McGrath’s UMBC Performing Arts and Humanities Building Project Portfolio

University of Maryland Baltimore County Performing Arts and Humanities Building was completed in two phases.  On the first phase of the project   MG McGrath fabricated and installed 17,500 square feet of Rimex Metals Inc.’s 22-gauge Stainless Steel Hook Seam Panels with its Champagne Granex with pattern 6-0M dimpled finish material. In addition to the stainless steel shingles, MG McGrath fabricated and installed all of the accessories including bending trim of Rimex Metals’ material to complete the weatherproof system.

In phase two, MG McGrath installed 16,650 square feet of Rimex Metals’ 2-foot by 5-foot Flat Lock Wall Panels with its 22-gauge Champagne Granex 304 with pattern 6-0M dimpled finish. MG McGrath used its model to get the panels flattened and make them in trapezoid shapes to keep the vertical lines on the wall straight and plumb. MG McGrath also installed the west-end thumbprint framing with Minneapolis-based Radius Track’s curved studs and covered it with plywood, vapor barrier and metal panels over the wall.
