Innovation in Metal and Glass It’s enough to make you smile: a dental building constructed with innovations in metal and glass that yield cost control, performance and beauty. Buzbee Dental in Springfield, Missouri, features 5,400 sq. ft. of 4 mm Alucobond® Material as exterior cladding panels in colors of Birch and Cadet Grey. Chosen in part for their superior formability, the Alucobond panels were engineered, fabricated and installed by Universe Corporation, St. Louis. “This project uses a rainscreen system that has a non-progressive installation, meaning that any one panel can be removed and re-installed without disturbing adjacent panels,” said Matt Ford of Universe Corporation. “We worked with the designer on panel module size and other details to control costs.” READ MORE
