Petersen Roof Highlights Luxury Lakeside Condominiums|
Emulating modern French Chateau style, the Grand Harbor Condominiums at Grand Harbor Marina located at the junction of the Tennessee River and the Tombigbee Waterway near Pickwick Dam, Tenn., have become landmark structures. Eighty luxury condominium units are included in two individual buildings encompassing approximately 118,000 square feet.
Both buildings are topped with a total of 24,000 square feet of Petersen’s Snap-Clad® Panels finished in PAC-CLAD® Forest Green. The panels are 24 gauge galvanized steel.
According to Dean Mueller, president of PDC Land Co., “The vision was to create an upscale, high-rise condo development complete with a world-class marina. That simply didn’t exist at Pickwick. Equally important though, we knew we needed a distinctive look in order to appeal to our affluent audience.”
The architectural firm for the project was Pickering Firm, Inc., Memphis. “We wanted to deliver an affluent residential feel with architectural flair and style in a resort environment,” said project architect Judy Yeoh. “As various modifications in the design were considered, the owner was adamant about keeping the roof because of the character it imparted.”
Ralph Jones Sheet Metal, Memphis, was the roofing contractor. According to Gordon Jones, “It was a complex job with radius dormers and porch coverings and lots of transverse cut miters. There were very few straight panels. It was also high work, done during the winter with little or no storage area on the roof itself. It was a challenge for the crew but the job came out great.”
Judy Yeoh agrees. “They did a great job. In fact, this project is a good example of integrating a metal roof with other exterior materials including fieldstone, brick and EIFS. And the crenulated facade broke up the massive building in a manner that created good visual interest. Everyone is really delighted with it.”
The general contractor was Linkous Construction Company in Memphis.
Produced in factory formed lengths up to 55 feet, Petersen’s Snap-Clad Panels are Herr-Voss corrective leveled to provide superior flatness. Longer lengths are available by consulting the factory. All are available in 33 standard colors on steel and 28 standard colors on aluminum.
