Architects Design Texas Military Barracks Using Modular Panel System Technology
Historically military barracks are not often designed with modernity in mind. These buildings serve an essential function, to house our nation’s military personnel. Yet, the Army Barracks in Powderly, Texas goes a step further, showcasing the fusion of essential function and contemporary design. Designed by Base4 Architecture, the new Army Barracks building is entirely modular, clad in an interlocking panel system with the Army’s signature camouflage color palette.
The First Key Steps In The Modern Fabricator Process: Design Assist, Estimation, and Project Management
For the fabricator to handle the most complex construction challenges, and still deliver the highest quality products, a well thought out and tested process and workflow needs to be in place. At CEI Materials, we have created such a process with personnel that are well-equipped to anticipate and overcome potential design issues that may arise well before any fabrication takes place.
How The Modern Fabricator Is A Trusted Partner In Mandated Testing Performance
Mandated testing performance is one of the most important issues in building construction and demands continuous monitoring and adaption to keep up with new and innovative products and techniques. This emergence has changed the status quo at an amazing rate, driven by both technology and societal demands. The modern fabricator must be fully aware of this multi-faceted environment and adapt his products and technologies to address them.
New Webinar: The Significance of the Fabricator in the Design Process: Architectural Panel Surfaces & Systems
Educate the Design Team as to the key role and significance played by the Fabricator on a project. This new understanding will enable the Team to consult and involve the Fabricator early in the design process. This early involvement will enable the Design Team to navigate code requirements, meet sustainability objectives, and design more efficiently. For the purposes of this course, we will discuss the fabrication of various design applications, common attachments systems, and features and benefits of a variety of cladding materials.
How The Modern Fabricator Helps Effectively Choose The Total Wall Assembly
After the architect and fabricator have reviewed the surface options and decided which meet their criteria for performance, aesthetics, and cost, it is time to move on to choosing how the chosen materials can be most effectively attached to the exterior building envelope. This again is the area where the modern fabricator can be most effective in helping the architect with his like mind solution-driven mandate.
