Franklin Square Hospital Patient Tower & Emergency Department, Baltimore

franklin_squareA new entryway and lobby are the focal points of the new addition to Franklin Square Hospital's Patient Tower and Emergency Department. Quality Metalcrafts worked closely with the contractor, Zephyr Aluminum, to coordinate material releases and shipments to accommodate the construction schedule for both the interior and exterior components of the project. Quality Metalcrafts' AMERICLAD AC-1000 composite panels with a clear anodized finish, complement the building's exterior and the entrance's canopy. The same panel type was also used for the soffits, cornice panels, and coping and fascia of the exterior, carrying the fresh new look to the entire front of the new addition.

In addition to supplying materials for the addition's exterior, Quality Metalcrafts / AMERICLAD also supplied custom AMERICLAD AC-10C composite column covers with a clear anodized finish, for both the building's interior and exterior. The open canopy and glass entrance allow natural light into the lobby. The end result is a style that creates an open atmosphere in a lobby that spans three stories high.
