Northwood Health Systems in Wheeling, West Virginia is committed to providing cost-effective, quality care to patients of all ages with emotional problems, intellectual disabilities, mental illness, and drug and alcohol addiction. To better achieve this mission, Northwood built a new 28,800-square-foot outpatient care facility, including a 16-bed crisis stabilization unit and space for intensive outpatient programs.
When the project team designed the new care center, it was critical to create a space that was welcoming for patients and families.
Designed to Invite
With previous experience, the team from Kalkreuth Roofing & Sheet Metal trusted CENTRIA products and worked in partnership with architects from M&G Architects & Engineers and the CENTRIA sales team to design the optimal solution for the healthcare facility that reflected the modern care provided inside. The project team selected IW-11A panels to provide a contemporary facade and a resilient rainscreen system that would require minimal maintenance for the medical center.
Crews installed nearly 4,000 square feet of 20-guage galvanized steel IW-11A panels coated with a mica paint finish in Silversmith to complete the exterior of the healthcare facility.
IW Series metal rainscreen panels eliminate exposed fasteners for a clean, unbroken aesthetic. The common-lock joint design makes IW Series panels interchangeable on a project and minimizes moisture intrusion. With the ability to install year-round, installation time is shortened, reducing construction costs.
“The Kalkreuth team came to CENTRIA early on, which ensured the application was appropriate for the project and confirmed the details up front,” said Ben Marnik, district sales manager at CENTRIA. “The relationship and collaboration set a level of quality for building performance and an expectation of what’s to come for the facility.”
Care Close to Home
After eight months of construction, Northwood Health Systems open their new facility in the fall of 2021.
