Metallic Building Company Chosen for SC
Construction on the North Charleston, South Carolina Nason Medical Center
included seven buildings with vigilant consideration given to four large oak
trees that would remain undisturbed.
The facility boasts 10,000 sq. ft of space and is comprised of six cardiac
rooms, six exam rooms, a triage room, three trauma rooms, two X-ray rooms, a
large reception area, large nurses’ stations and a covered drive thru for
pick-ups and drop-offs. Some unique features include large sliding glass doors,
12’ windows, custom cabinetry and a towering 29’ ceiling.
The exterior is finished with a 6” metal stud curtain wall with brick up to
3’-4” and EIFS to the cornice on all sides of the building. The fascia on the
tower has column reveals and protruding cornice on three sides. The facility
features a Metallic Double-Lok® Galvalume® ¼”:12 single slope standing seam
roof, chosen for its longevity, ease of installation and minimal long-term
maintenance requirements. Double-Lok® was an ideal choice for this project as
its knock-in bridging stabilizes and thus strengthens the purlin system,
enabling it to endure high-force winds.
Overall the pre-engineered metal building was chosen for its cost effectiveness.
