Norton Brownsboro Hospital is the first new full-service hospital to open in the Louisville, Ky., area in more than 20 years.
five-story, 298,000 square foot facility features the latest in health care
technology and an innovative patient and family-centered care model.
Approximately 58,000 square feet of Metl-Span CF Architectural Flat 2- and 3-inch insulated, horizontal and vertical wall panels finished
in Antique Bronze and Oyster were used to clad the $146 million facility.
The project was designed
by Karlsberger Architecture Inc. of Columbus, Ohio.
The Metl-Span panels were
installed by ProClad Inc., based in Noblesville, Ind.
Metl-Span’s ability to provide a variety
of panel modules was an important factor, project manager Steve
“Due to the design of the project and the alignment of the joints with
the windows and curtain wall, it was difficult to get a standard module panel to
work with the layout," he said. "Metl-Span’s flexibility to produce different module
panels was a key factor."
The budget for the
project was an important factor in selecting Metl-Span, too.
“The cost of
Metl-Span allowed us to be very competitive in our bid,” Miller
The general contractor on
the project was Messer/TMG of Louisville.
