When Plant City’s beloved, nearly 50-year-old community center was damaged during Hurricane Irma, the difficult decision was made to demolish the aging center and build a more modern, resilient one in its place. The goal was to build a lasting facility that, like the one before it, will provide a safe and welcoming place for the Plant City community to come together. With this vision in mind, the city partnered with The Lunz Group to design a vibrant, new community center that’s dedicated to sustainability and weather preparedness, and that future generations will be able to enjoy for many years to come.
The National Bank of Miami wished to modernize and update their 2 levels of existing offices located on the 19th floor of The Miami Tower. Included was a complete redesign of their reception area. The owners and Architects wanted to create an immediate “Wow” effect, make the area inviting and warm by taking advantage of Miami’s abundant morning sun. The Moderco Vision single panel “see-through” glass panel system was selected as meeting all design and aesthetic requirements. Folding Walls of Miami had to overcome many non-standard issues such as the project being on the 19th floor of a downtown tower, the existing floor was not level requiring modifications, the installation of track within an existing ceiling and accounting for the installation of a 5/8” thick marble floor. But the desired effect was achieved as Moderco Vision truly delivered the goods as light pours into the room highlighting the new interior furnishings.

Scotland’s first dedicated design museum blends architectural expression with energy conscious design. Home to curiosity, innovation and learning, the £80m building is situated on the edge of the majestic River Tay.
Commissioned by Dundee City Council, the iconic landmark is the first building in the United Kingdom that has been designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma and was built by BAM Construction. The visually-striking structure provides a new social and cultural hub, comprising 1,650 m2 of exhibition space connected to the historic riverfront. Inspired by Scottish cliffs, the angular form of V&A Dundee immediately demands attention.
The building also celebrates the best in energy efficient design achieving a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ Rating. Kingspan utilised the air source heat pumps in combination with geothermal energy to improve energy conservation. The V&A features thirty 200-metre deep bore holes to heat and cool the building. To ensure rainwater is effectively channelled off the flat roof, Kingspan’s tapered roofing design team created the detailed layout and specification for the final roof insulation scheme. These solutions address the potential heat loss from the museum’s expansive flat roof and also provide drainage management to prevent long-term maintenance issues. All three Kingspan Insulation products installed at the museum have been assigned the highest possible BRE Green Guide Summary Rating of A+.
On the second-floor circulation, foyer and galleries, Kingspan Access Floors supplied an RMG600 medium grade system for the museum. Finished with Attiro magnetic engineered timber flooring, this provides a high specification overlay finish with the benefits of a functional design which allows for easy access to the service void below. With 500,000 visitors expected in the first 12 months, the flooring solution also ensures durability.
