It’s that process, the give and take of problem solving to make it work – that’s really fun.
Interview with the Architect:
We had the pleasure of working with VITETTA to find the perfect cladding solution for the aging facade at the PA State Police Department Headquarters in Harrisburg, PA.
Project Designer Christopher K. Dardis, RA took a moment to discuss the project with us.
What made our product or service stand out from other options?
IMETCO’s standard of service to the professional is excellent. Starting from product recommendations at the beginning of a project, working through design solutions during the design & construction documentation phases, and the subsequent top-notch shop drawings – the IMETCO team really helped us realize our design goals.
What problem(s) were you trying to solve with our product?
For our project, we were tasked with repairing and/or replacing failing limestone veneer panel system with ultimate goal of updating the overall aesthetics of a 1975 brick and limestone clad building. Our solution was to re-clad over the existing veneer for the entire building with IMETCO’s Latitude wall panel system, which allowed us to remove the failed limestone panels with out having to replace them while dramatically changing the aesthetics of the buildings tired architecture.
What have you been able to achieve by using our product(s) or service?
The design flexibility of IMETCO’s wall panel has allowed us to totally change the aesthetics of our project building, it looks like a brand new building even though it is 45 years old.
What is the main reason you recommend our product or service?
The product line together with the service and support is what separates IMETCO from the competitors.
What made you happiest about working with our company?
We really enjoy working with people who are willing to work with you & your design goals especially when it requires trying something new, a change from what is already in manufacturer’s catalog. It’s that process, the give and take of problem solving to make it work – that’s really fun.
