TEMPLE UNIVERSITY – Science, Education & Research Center (SERC)

Temple University selected StoneLite® Cenia limestone panels to grace the exterior of their new seven story SERC building.  More than 46,000 sq. ft. of StoneLite® panels were installed in an open joint, exterior rain screen application.  In addition to the exterior flat panels SPI also manufactured the highly complicated and detailed stair components including the cap.

The architectural team was able to visit our manufacturing facility in Coppell, TX to view the panels and determine the placement of panels through an onsite lay down.

LEXUS OF THOUSAND OAKS

StoneLite® Impala Black granite panels were manufactured with a flamed and blushed finish to compliment other platinum hued materials. The flaming process not only changed the color to a more platinum hue but provided a textural element. A significant number of panels included 1, 2 and 3 sided returns up to 5” creating the monolithic appearance of dimensional stone. Panels were installed on the exterior facade, interior, columns, interior soffit, and parapet.

OVERFORMYNDERIET

The Ministry building adjacent to the Parliament was historically significant and needed to undergo restoration as the substrate was failing and the exterior façade was being held in place with surface fasteners. The goal was to maintain the Greenland marble on the exterior but replacing it with newly mined material was not an option as the quarry was closed in the 1920s.

The existing Greenland marble was removed from the exterior and shipped to Texas where it was fabricated into StoneLite® panels. Lightweight stone plugs were manufactured to insert into the holes created by the surface fasteners. Some corner panels required a fixed curved and were fabricated to a radius of 11’-1” and 7’-9”.

23-24 NEWMAN ST.

A multi-story exterior, column band, balcony fascias, and soffits project clad in 313 m2 of StoneLite® St. Hubert SLG and Texas Cordova Shellstone Limestone. The project scope was a retrofit and conversion of a 1970’s unsightly office building  into 23 residential apartments with office accommodations on the ground floor.

The StoneLite® panels lightweight properties are a natural solution to architectural features where weight may be an issue.

The project won Best Housing (Large) in the AJ Retrofit Awards 2012 and a Blue Ribbon Award for Best Apartment.
