Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital
Architectural metal panels were chosen for Sutter Health’s new regional hospital, which opened Oct. 25, 2014. The state-of-the-art hospital features 24-gauge Span Seam roof curve structures in a custom Sienna color. The wall application and equipment screens feature 18-gauge Box Rib and Reverse Box Rib in Cool Weathered Copper, Cool Sierra Tan and Cool Zinc Grey—all of which are part of the manufacturer’s Cool Dura Tech 5000 standard color offer. Dura Tech 5000 coating combines the corrosion protection of a ZINCALUME substrate with a durable resin formulation and cool pigment technology to provide color retention and reduce the demand for energy. Moreover, Dura Tech 5000 is ENERGY STAR-certified and listed with the Cool Roof Rating Council, Oakland, Calif.
ARCHITECTURAL METAL PANELS MANUFACTURER: AEP Span
Before breaking ground on the project, the design and construction team met with the owners to evaluate and state goals to ensure a green project design. The design of the facility integrates sustainable building strategies from the ground up and complies with the LEED criteria from the U.S. Green Building Council, Washington, D.C.
Including AEP Span’s architectural metal panels in Cool Dura Tech 5000 coating along with other green-building materials and LEED-compliant innovations represents Sutter Health’s commitment to the local community in which it serves and regional sustainability concerns.
