ARCHITECT: ERO Architects, McAllen, TX
GENERAL CONTRACTOR: Noble Texas Builders
INSTALLER: Bowman Architectural
PRODUCT: Contour Perforated Panels, Aurora Attachment System
The Brownsville Public Utility Board (BPUB) has played an important role in the city of Brownsville, Texas since 1960. We were tapped to provide a functional upgrade to its façade.
The Aurora system enabled a 1,145 square-meter Contour panel area, 3-millimeter (mm) perforated aluminum panels with 32mm diameter holes at 54mm centers. We used EB brackets to secure the facade in place with the frame.
Aurora allowed for exact engineering design calculations and shop drawing preparation. The system is the only one on the market that is fully customizable to meet any specific requirements and integrations.
The result was an intricate custom perforated design. We used the Interpon D2525 powder-coat system and 6mm aluminum top hats of varying sizes to create a uniquely creative façade. To help with the façade’s durability against the Texas elements, we chose to use Custom Aurora extrusion anodized rails coated in a protective oxide layer made by an electrolytic process. This coating on the rails, coupled with the custom blue powdercoat on the panels, will help keep the façade looking like new.
