CENTRIA® perforated panels complete Whole Foods Market project in Midtown Tampa
As announced by CENTRIA® last week, their recently completed project in Midtown Tampa celebrates “the future of urban living.” Midtown Tampa, Tampa Bay’s hottest new social hub, features a contemporary and energetic vibe, bringing the best of living, working, shopping, dining, entertainment, health and hospitality together in this new area. A new 48,000 square-foot Whole Foods Market, complete with 7,000 square feet of CENTRIA’s EcoScreen, perforated 0.040-inch painted aluminum panels in Sherwin-Williams’ 6748 Green, fits right in with this hip, modern, contemporary look.
Join RAiNA next month on Monday, May 9, for its 3rd Annual General Meeting (AGM) but first “in-person” meeting in Reston, Virginia.
RAiNA was officially founded in January 2022 on the premise that an unbiased organization needed to exist to offer clarity to the wall assembly industry, trades, and design professionals on the subject of rainscreen design – an often confused and misunderstood term. The organization’s mission is to provide unbiased clarity to the plethora of “rainscreen noise,” by providing the definition of rainscreen design and review a host of rainscreen assemblies.
Now it’s in 9th year, Metal Construction News (MCN) announced their 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards for top products in the metal construction industry. The top product for this year goes to Milwaukee-based Xena Workwear Inc. for their Omerga EH Safety Boot. The other products selected were incredibly varied and showed no clear pattern of preference. Ranging from insulated metal panels and perforated screens to curtainwalls and louvers, the products identified by MCN’s readers touch on every facet of the metal construction industry and show the breadth of the industry’s building product needs.
