Metal Construction News magazine featured MG McGrath’s work on the Speed Art Museum in their recent November 2017 issue, which focused on Museums, Libraries, and Cultural Centers.
The main challenge was designing something new to look historic. The metal panels bridged the gap between old and new, and the materials change in daylight. A 60,000-square-foot north pavilion was created by stacking three shifted volumes sheathed in fritted glass and folded aluminum panels, similar to the mouldings of the original museum.
MG McGrath Architectural Surfaces manufactured, fabricated and installed a 20,610-square-foot CENTRIA MetalWrap insulated-core metal wall backup system and 19,540-square-foot corrugated, expanded aluminum panel system with a pattern. Additionally, the project included a 485-square-foot aluminum composite metal wall panel system and 245-square-foot corrugated screenwall with aluminum corrugated wall panels at the backside. – Metal Construction News
