Office & Mixed-Use

Gilead Sciences Inc., Foster City, Calif.

The new building for a medical research company features 8,766 square feet (814 m2) of UNA-CLAD Series 3000 0.125-aluminum plate panels in Painted Silver from Firestone Metal Products Inc. The building’s design includes a non-traditional angle at one end of the building, which provided a challenge for the installer. The metal panels were custom sized and shaped to work with the angle, while providing a unique look to the completed project.
