Independence High School, Frisco, Texas

Independence High School was designed with metal panels for aesthetics and to minimize views of rooftop equipment.

Independence High School was designed with metal panels for aesthetics and to minimize views of rooftop equipment. Approximately 160,000 square feet of McElroy Metal's 16-inch-wide Maxima 216 metal roof panels in Weathered Galvalume were rollformed on-site with an Archzilla rollforming machine.

The eave height was approximately 36 feet high, which made it a challenge to get the panels to the roof. Installers backed away from the building and ran a panel onto the roof to create a bridging effect.

The LEED Silver-certified project utilized 24-gauge, 12-inch flush metal wall panels; 24-gauge, 12-inch flush soffit panels; and 22-gauge Maxima 216 metal roof panels. The standing seam roof system incorporated reflective paint pigments.
