FABRICATED STONE CLADDING, VENEER DESIGN FOR SMU COMMONS

SMU Commons is newly developed residential hall. The designers wanted the new buildings to blend will the overall campus, and yet give it a contemporary feeling for the buildings that are equipped with cutting edge technology. The AAS team worked closely with the customer to custom design and fabricate the stone panels used in the buildings for unifying design accent.

The building designs combined architectural stone cladding, as well monolithic stone veneer for the intended aesthetic vision.


Cladding Design

All the halls in SMU Commons have wall copings, architectural trim, stone panel entry way designs, wainscots that unified the design accent. With computerized batch plant to precisely control the admixture for the manufactured stone panels, the custom color and structural properties of the stone panels were consistently uniform.

The buildings have integrated cornice and banding designs with look of monolithic stone.

The cladding application design used both cast stone, as well as GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete).

Veneer Design

The stone veneer design in the project has effect of monolithic stone customized to maximize the views. It is designed to integrate with the glass. Close working relationship with the contractor and designer for the project was a key to confirm design feasibility. The AAS team developed custom molds to fabricate every stone piece to precise shape with stringent tolerance requirements. The stone panels color precisely with cladding panels used throughout the SMU Commons buildings.

SMU COMMONS: EXTERIOR VENEER, CLADDING, HARDSCAPE DESIGN USING STONE PANELS


Advanced Architectural Stone (AAS) has extensive track record for manufacturing cast stone, architectural precast and GFRC for cladding, exterior veneer, and almost any other architectural design.

These pictures are of a number of buildings at the Southern Methodist University (SMU) campus. You are viewing a new dining hall and housing complex call the SMU Commons; the vision was to integrate these buildings with the overall identity of the campus. At the same time, the designers wanted to create a contemporary feel to the buildings to reflect the school’s cutting edge approach to education and its fun, nurturing, and exciting environment for students.

The AAS team proposed carrying out the design including the exterior cladding and stone veneers using two different products: cast stone and glass fiber reinforced concrete panels (GFRC).

STONE PANELS FOR STONELEIGH RESIDENTIAL TOWER

AAS stone panels are used on this project in various applications, as an exterior veneer rain-screen, at the entry and base of the facade, as the surround stone on all balconies, as a banding at the penthouse tower area, and extensively at the garden and pool areas. This project is an excellent example of using matching masonry materials, GFRC and cast stone.

When the structural shell of this building was completed in 2008, AAS provided cast stone wall panels for the first two floors of the parking garages. However, the building went into receivership soon after construction started, and was then purchased by a new owner in 2012. After a four years hiatus, a different general contractor was hired to complete the project along with a number of new suppliers. The architects for the project continued to emphasize the importance of the original design vision particularly of the stone panels on the balconies and on every floor of the tower. The AAS team recommended using GFRC panels for this to take advantage of the lighter weight and ease of installation. The carefully controlled batch mix of the GFRC wall panels matched the color and finish of the cast stone used on the first two floors.

The challenge for AAS team was to understand the requirements of the new installer, and to modify the stone panels accordingly. While the balcony areas on different floors appear the same visually, there was a large variation in the dimensions. The support cut-out further complicated the balconies because there were different railing suppliers with varying cut-out positons. AAS engineering team created a series of unique notch and block-outs in the panel molds in order to create custom panels for almost every balcony. The built-in, pre-engineered GFRC connections simplified the installation for the contractor significantly and allowed the project to be highly successful.

3-D FRAMING USING MANUFACTURED VENEER PANELS AT ROTC BUILDING, UCF


The new ROTC building at University of Central Florida highlights a 13-sided sculpture honoring our country and soldiers throughout the history.

The AAS team created framed views of the sculpture using architectural cast stone panels. The sculpture is housed in a one and half feet thick rotunda made from custom design dry-cast stone, and GFRC concrete panels. The rotunda is three stories high with 30 feet in diameter. There are three large radius openings in it with a complex series of step backs that create framed views of the sculpture from different directions.

This three-dimensional frame accentuates and emphasizes the unique sculpture symbolizing the spirit and storied tradition of the ROTC.

Color and texture consistency of architectural stone was achieved through a computer driven batch design.

The  CNC technology was utilized to design custom molds for the GFRC, cast stone wall panel pieces. Every one of the manufactured stone wall panels matched extremely stringent tolerance requirements. With all stone panels seamlessly fitting together, the entrance facade achieved desired look of a monolithic piece of stone.

PROJECT: Texas Christian University (TCU) Relief Panels

 

This project consisted of 6 panels installed in the entry to the remodeled and enlarged football stadium at Texas Christian University. The panels were made using architectural percast and cast stone. The purpose of the panels and the project was to honor and recognize the original founders of the University dating to 1895.

Architect for the project, HKS Architects hired an artist to approve and render the murals. The AAS team transferred the original art work to a rubber mold for casting. The panels represent the cultural icon at the heart and soul of the Texas Christian University. It was critical that the panels can be seen within a few feet of viewer. AAS team used its experience and technology to refine every detail within the mold, so that panels accurately depict the original aesthetic appeal so critical to project’s success.

The project won 2014 APA (Architectural Precast Association) Craftsmanship Award.

Here is a composite showing example panels.
