Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center
When the opportunity to renovate the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center & Bill T. Teague Neighborhood Donor Center facilities were presented to Sheri Burmaster, Project Manager with The Blood Center, several challenges became evident. With several different flooring needs present Sheri began her search for the products that would make the renovation a success. She knew they needed to consider resilient products for high traffic areas that required low maintenance, had a slip-resistant option and that were appealing/modern in appearance. Sustainable products are always preferred, but since this facility was not attaining a LEED certification, it was not a must.

BASTEEL Perimeter Systems - Series 6000 Cantilever Gate
BASTEEL Perimeter Systems had the pleasure to work with arcDESIGN (www.arcdesign.us) on the IU Health Morgan County hospital renovation project in Martinsville, IN. Prior to the renovations, the rear of the building was quite visible to the adjacent heavily-travelled highway and provided motorist with an unobstructed view of the HVAC cooling tower and trash compactor units. As part of the renovations, the architect designed a 15’H CMU wall with fiber cement siding to hide these necessary but unsightly units from view. After consulting with BASTEEL during the design phase arcDESIGN selected the Series 6000 Cantilever Gate with Bennington infill to allow access to the now hidden units. The gate as designed is 15’H x 29’W and weighs a staggering 2100 lbs., yet moves effortlessly by hand. Manufactured using pre-galvanized materials, silicon-bronze welding wire, sealed bearing rollers and coated with KYNAR™ organic fluoropolymer coatings, the gate will stand the test of time for decades to come.

Stalite / Permatill - The Ruby C. McSwain Education Center Green Roof
The research project was conducted in the North Carolina Piedmont during one of the worst droughts in state history. The JC Raulston Arboretum located on the campus of NC State University, Raleigh The ongoing study is utilizing plants on the green roof that are adaptive to the arid Southwestern United States. The purpose for trial was to study how the sedums perform in the micro climate provided and compare with the Southwest plant selections growing in the same location. Observations include: plant growth and survival, drought tolerance, root rot, and plant variety dominance. No automatic irrigation was provided for the project when the green roof was installed in 2004. Originaly used as a sedum display, the intrest in other drought tolerant species of plants prompted Dr. Denny Werner to showcase the desert plants which he felt would survive the hot dry microclimates the roof offered. The JC Raulston study will provide a listing the green roof plants used and recommendations for the Southern United States.
