Neiman Marcus, Garden City, N.Y.

Photo: Kevin AlbertElkus Manfredi Architects designed Neiman Marcus at Roosevelt Field mall with 3-D metal panels in multiple colors. One project challenge was to develop an attachment system for the metal panels. Kenneth J. Herman Inc. fabricated and installed a set of aluminum extrusions to attach the panels. It programmed and cut the shapes on a CNC router.

Kenneth J. Herman installed approximately 45,000 square feet in 2,300 panels of Mitsubishi Plastics Composites America Inc.'s 4-mm ALPOLIC FR metal composite material in six colors with a Valflon high-gloss (70 percent) coil-coated paint finish. The $200 million, 105,000-square-foot project was completed in August 2015.
