The Modern Fabricator and The Changing Nature of the Key Players of Architectural Panel Systems
CEI Materials has invested heavily in the areas of design, technology, and robotic production capabilities in order to become a modern fabricator and better serve its AEC customers. Over the next several months we are going to spotlight the meaning of the modern fabricator and how CEI Materials has adapted and developed internal processes in order to meet market demands.
New Measurement Systems Laboratory at NASA Langley Features Impressive Multi-Material Façade
Groundbreaking began on NASA Langley’s largest laboratory in April 2017. The nearly 96-million-dollar project in Hampton, Virginia is part of a revitalization plan for NASA Langley that will replace and repurpose the site’s facilities. “The Measurement Systems Laboratory will be a world-class facility for research and development of new measurement concepts, technologies, and systems that will enable NASA to achieve its mission in space exploration, science, and aeronautics,” Michael Finneran of NASA Langley Research Center explains.
Massive Mixed-Use Design In Malden Provides Residents A Gateway To City Living
The J Malden Center redesign has been the collaborative effort of the Jefferson Apartment Group and the City of Malden since 2013. The site’s transformation was intended to provide Malden residents with an immersive experience by providing a central location to the MBTA station, retail, and various restaurants.
The Importance Of Uniformity And Consistency To Corporate Identity Programs
When a company looks to create a Corporate Identity Program (CID), whether that be in hospitality, retail, food service, automotive, or medical markets, they seek the creation of a design that will bolster their brand’s equity. A CID Program becomes a visual representation of a brand and when that design is erected, a brand seeks to duplicate the design on a national, and often international, basis.
How The Fabricator Has Evolved To Meet The Needs Of The Architectural Community
Over the last two decades, fabrication has dramatically changed. Traditional cladding materials such as glass, stone and metal now share the architectural space with cladding products such as fiber cement and high-pressure laminates. The evolution of materials has influenced the growth of the fabricator. As architects seek shared wall space exteriors, it is the fabricator’s responsibility to stay abreast to new trends and adapt to architecture’s ever-changing trajectory.
