Alcoa's Kawneer business, the leading manufacturer of architectural aluminum building products and systems for commercial construction, has introduced a new institutional solutions brochure that offers architects an array of information and projects-specific examples that shows the flexibility and sustainability of Kawneer’s comprehensive product portfolio. The brochure showcases Kawneer’s strong knowledge of the institutional market, specifically in the education, healthcare and public buildings segments.
Designing institutional buildings can present unique architectural challenges. Kawneer specializes in meeting the challenges of the institutional market through exceptional design, an integrated product portfolio, world-class engineering and unparalleled expertise. Kawneer’s commitment to social and environmental responsibility enables it to provide solutions that are smart, healthy and secure. The goal of educational buildings is to foster student development, as well as reduce energy demand and environmental impact by using smarter products. Healthcare facilities require an environment that is designed for healing as well as operational efficiency, while public buildings must provide maximum security for occupants. Kawneer’s high-performance products and systems that comply with LEED standards are designed to allow maximum use of daylight, improve energy efficiency, promote superior ventilation and create secure environments, helping meet the needs of the institutional market.
The brochure features key information, excerpts and images from several institutional projects that Kawneer has completed. The projects were selected to provide a wide range of real-world building examples in the education, healthcare and public markets.
Kawneer also brings the institutional solutions brochure to life via its website. The website includes a downloadable version of the print tool and direct links to Kawneer products, project profiles and Kawneer’s LEED Planning Tool.
Kawneer believes institutional buildings should be more than just shared spaces and should inspire and reflect the people occupying these spaces. The new institutional brochure demonstrates Kawneer’s capabilities within the institutional segment – as well as its ongoing commitment to delivering energy-efficient solutions – while promoting integrated, whole-building design practices.
