Used by thousands of students, faculty, and staff on a daily basis, educational facilities require durable structures able to withstand the everyday wear and tear exerted on school buildings. For this reason, the fabricators at Byrne Metals knew that when working on San Jacinto College, ALPOLIC panels were the choice material to provide superior quality and sustainability.

Located in Pasadena, Texas, San Jacinto College has undergone several additions and renovations since it first opened in 1961. In December 1999, a $91 million bond allowed the construction of six new buildings, including the Interactive Learning and Fine Arts centers. Almost ten years later, in 2008, a $295 million bond was approved to fund renovations and new facilities throughout San Jacinto’s Central, North, and South campuses.

Completed in 1975, the North Campus location in Houston boasts over 6,500 students studying award-winning programs. As part of the capital improvement bond, construction of a new allied health and natural sciences building began in early 2011. Upon completion earlier this month, the over 130,000 square ft. high-tech facility will provide quality training, cutting-edge labs, and the latest technological advances in the science and health fields.

To ensure high durability and a sophisticated appearance, ALPOLIC ACM panels were used on the canopies, entryways, building fascia, interior walls, soffit panels, and clerestory. Those who worked on the project praised ALPOLIC for its ease of use, versatility, and superior customer service. The new facility is currently pending LEED certification.
