Due to its organic aesthetics, approximately 5,000 square feet of ATAS International Inc.'s 0.032-aluminum CastleTop in Coppertone was chosen to clad the sides of the Nisqually Tribe Administration Building. This reflects nature and complements the other prominent features in the facility's design, completed in May 2013. The project includes a roofline reminiscent of the native salmon, a two-story cable-supported curtainwall and an indoor pond. WHH Nisqually Federal Services LLC provided construction management services for the $8 million, 26,000-square-foot facility.
