Plainfield Fire Territory, Hendricks County, Ind.

The Plainfield Fire Territory utilizes 6,500 square feet of Metl-Span CF-16, CF-24 and CF-32 Architectural Flat insulated wall panels. The horizontally installed panels were finished in Atlantic Sunrise and feature false reveals. The building also incorporates Metl-Span's Metl-Vision window system as a key part of the design.

Installed by ProCLAD Inc., Brad Hitzfield, ProCLAD's president notes: "For a relatively small project, this was a medium- to high-complexity job from our standpoint. The project had custom reveals as well as false reveals and utilized several different panel modules. The challenge, of course, was maintaining the horizontal lines and integrating the different systems in making the transition around corners."

The Plainfield Fire Territory responds to more than 4,400 calls annually. The new Fire Station 123 was constructed to provide better response throughout the Territory's 45 square mile service area. The 23,000-square-foot facility includes four truck bays and room to house 16 firefighters and EMTs, plus training and administrative space.
