Insulated Metal Panels - United States


  • Challenges
  • Solutions

The Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) decided to renovate an underutilized building and the initial plan was to bring it back to "like new" condition. Field’s Avenue Garage, built in 1984, needed new mechanical and electrical systems, plus an updated exterior. The building houses a bus maintenance facility shop, administrative areas, and storage space.

Because COTA needed the structure to remain operational during the renovation, design and construction, work had to be completed on a fast-track basis. The limited construction timeline meant suppliers of building material products had to meet strict delivery schedules. The design also included one very challenging requirement: the insulated metal panels needed to be curved at a tight radium.
