Studio 8 Design LLC specified a combination of smooth and ribbed metal panels to convert and delineate a former 19,781-square-foot car dealership into two distinct businesses, Thomas Collision Inc. and Carly Thomas, DDS. Smooth metal panels provide visual cues for separate entries. Ribbed panels provide continuity and cohesion in the design for the automotive repair and pediatric dental businesses.

Stubbs Metal Construction Inc. installed Mitsubishi Chemical Composites America Inc.’s ALPOLIC metal composite material panels, MBCI’s PBR metal wall panels and MBCI’s Masterline 16 metal wall panels.

Malinda Taylor, marketing director at Studio 8 Design, says, “The building’s exterior reflects a modern aesthetic with sleek, prefinished Masterline panels, aluminum composite panels and prefinished aluminum canopies. The interior of both businesses reflects a modern design. The collision center showroom features classic cars and a historic backdrop of the City of Valdosta, and the dental office provides a welcoming and inviting interior design.”
