Alcoa Reynobond Aluminum Helps Create Dramatic Design of Cancer Center

 

 

\"\"

 

Alcoa\’s (NYSE:AA) Reynobond® Aluminum Composite Material (ACM) was used to achieve the dramatic sloping façade of the award-winning Seidman Cancer Center in Cleveland, Ohio. The Center is one of only 12 freestanding cancer hospitals in the nation designated by the National Cancer Institute as a Comprehensive Cancer Center.

 

Designed by St. Louis-based architectural firm Cannon Design, the 375,000 square-foot, 10-story hospital features 59,000 square feet of Reynobond Natural Brushed ACM on the exterior and interior building fascia, soffits and parapet panels.

 

The narrow site allocated for the hospital virtually dictated that the hospital take on the form of a thick rectangular box. To incorporate large lobbies and treatment areas on the lower floors, the architects flared the west façade outward at the base – creating a big convex curve like the ramp of a very wide ski jump. In addition to protecting the building envelope, the Reynobond panels were the only natural metal composite material on the market with the required 62” material width needed for fabrication of the “Ski Jump” façade.

 

\”Reynobond ACM materials are ideal for this application,\” said George Rosado, Commercial Director for Alcoa Architectural Products. \”It can be roll-formed, cut, curved, bent or routed, or cut to form small- or large-radius curves, reverse curves, angles and other shapes not possible with traditional building materials – making it the perfect fit for the Seidman Cancer Center. Furthermore, the sleek, bold look of the natural brushed aluminum helps to define the building, creating a gateway to the campus.\”

 

The Center was designed according to the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®*) green building principles, and is registered for certification.

 

\”The high percentage of recycled content in Reynobond Natural Brushed Aluminum Composite Material makes it ideal for projects designed with LEED green building principles,\” Rosado added.

 

The $260 million Seidman Cancer Center has received the American Architecture Award from the Chicago Athenaeum, Museum of Architecture and Design as well as the Award of Excellence in the Large Project – New Construction Category from The Cleveland Engineering Society.
