Sallie Mae Headquarters Exterior Renovation
Metal Sales & Service Inc secures contract with Nason Construction [Wilmington DE] to complete the metal panel work for the building’s exterior renovation.
Green design often includes the use of solar shading to deflect sunlight and avoid solar heat gain on the exterior glazing. One effective method is to incorporate fabricated aluminum assemblies due to their light weight and high strength. Aluminum is structurally reliable, less prone to corrosion than steel and can be formed or economically fabricated… Read More
University of Maryland at Baltimore Dental School Baltimore MD:
The architectural intent was to create a series of different scaled exterior assemblies to accentuate the urban light patterns and merge a vertical tower into an enticing horizontal streetscape the architect called the “Bar Building.” They used horizontal trellis assemblies at roof and lower levels and vertical column accents blended with formed metal enclosures and glass. All exterior metals were coated with one kynar® color as a unifying theme.
The Metalwërks® products supplied on this project almost covered our complete offering including Metal-Lok Beam and column enclosures; Atrium/Skylight structure assembly; Horizontal aluminum trellis assemblies; Vertical column accents at brick piers; Arcwall 1500 Exterior wall and soffit panel cladding;
Unitized Stainless Steel exhaust stack enclosures; Glass canopy support structure.
Capital Cove/ Wyndham hotel, National Harbor, MD.
Site trellises were designed as assemblies made from varying sizes and shapes of curved and straight extruded aluminum tubes with welded end caps to close the ends. These end caps are ground smooth and polished prior to finishing. The same finish was selected for the Arcwall 1500 wall panels and the trellis features for a unifying effect.
Christina Crescent office Building,(currently Barclay's Bank), Wilmington DE:
When the architect wanted to integrate the exterior metal panels cladding and the signature feature on the top of the building, the sunshade cornice, he called Metalwërks® for their expertise in design, constructability and budgeting.

Century Engineering, Hunt Valley MD:
A projecting cornice feature is unitized and pre-assembled onto a shop fabricated frame assembly. This method allows the exterior wall cladding to proceed independently of the cornice to assure weather-tight integrity of the envelope. The projecting cornice becomes an architectural feature independent of air-water barrier. Structural clips protrude through and are sealed to the air water barrier prior to cornice installation which simplifies the envelope.
Pennsylvania Power and Light, Allentown PA:
The top of the building includes a dramatic cornice feature intended to create a brow effect on the South façade to shade the large glass walls. The entire system of secondary supports, cladding and grilles was design/engineered, fabricated and erected by Metalwërks® to resist wind and snow loads and to span the large openings. This shading design scheme was one of the factors that enabled the project to earn LEED Gold certification.
United Therapeutics Phase 2A Silver Spring, MD:
The support steel beams for the curved trellis work on this project were clad with a Zinc Composite material to exact dimensions. Wood slats were cut and mitered to fit between the support beams with clips that penetrated the Zinc Cladding.
