PPG recognized with Chairman’s Awards for three projects at METALCON 2014

PPG Industries’ coil and building products group received three 2014 Chairman’s Awards from the Metal Construction Association (MCA) at METALCON 2014, the only annual conference dedicated to metal construction products, technologies and solutions.

The North Scottsdale Park and Ride was selected in the metal roofing category. PPG supplied DURANAR VARI-COOL infrared (IR)-reflective metal roof coatings for the structure, which is located on a 6-acre site near the Scottsdale, Arizona, airport and provides 275 shaded parking spaces for commuters. The architectural highlight of the complex, designed by DWL Architects + Planners, Phoenix, is a 12,000-square-foot wing-like canopy that floats over the passenger platform and protects visitors from sunlight and weather.

The addition to and renovation of Chaffin Junior High School in Fort Smith, Arkansas, featuring “Hartford Green” Duranar coatings, was selected in the education–primary and secondary category.

PPG also supplied coatings to the new Arts and Science building at Valparaiso University, which earned honorable mention for creative detailing. Duranar coatings were applied to a 1/2-inch plate screenwall and light screen custom-cut to incorporate the school’s motto, “In Thy Light, We See Light,” along with the word “light” in 43 different languages. Duranar coatings were used to finish the building’s custom sunshades, screenwall support framing and entrance canopy.
