The Swedish company began making cemented carbide tools in the 1940s and soon became a leader in the metal cutting industry branching into a wide range of industries from biotechnology to defense and aerospace.

The company’s North American corporate campus was built in the 1950s and the 10-acre space was in need of updating. The company commissioned NK Architects to develop a master plan for the space that would showcase the company’s movement into the 21st century.

Architects Complete LEED Silver Renovation Of Historic Library In Massachusetts

Project Name: Holyoke Public Library
Location: Holyoke, MA
Architect: Finegold Alexander Architects
General Contractor: Fontaine Brothers
Installer: Great Lakes Metal Panels
CEI Materials System: R4000
Products: MCM, Vert-a-Cade Screen
Photography: Finegold Alexander Architects & Bob O'Connor
Sustainability: LEED Silver

The Holyoke Public Library in Holyoke, Massachusetts was built by James Clough in 1902. The original structure, after a century of public use, was literally crumbling. With broken pieces of exterior cornice falling daily and water damage throughout, the library was in desperate need of renovation. “A lack of funds, the passage of time and faulty drainage made 40% of the interior unusable by the time the library began renovations,” Finegold Alexander Architects explain.

CEI Materials Aids Designers In University of Michigan Renovation Using MCM and Insulated Panels

Schembechler Hall at the University of Michigan serves as an ode to the university’s rich football history. The building is the renovation of the former U of M football operations building and houses the new dedication museum for football enthusiasts devoted to the university’s legendary coach Bo Schembechler.

Scott Vyn, LEED AP, at Integrated Architecture explains, “Our challenge was to create a design that would distinguish Schembechler Hall as the home of Michigan Football while unifying it with its neighbors, Yost Ice Arena to the North and Al Glick Field House to the South.” He adds,  “Materials, proportions and rhythm from the larger Athletic campus carry into the new Schembechler Hall to strengthen and further solidify the Athletic campus, continuing the Michigan tradition through architecture.”

Architects Design Contemporary Police Station With #CEIMaterials Fabricated Panels

Historically municipality design takes few risks and sticks within a more traditional approach to its architectural design. These buildings often represent a community’s public use government spaces and remain unchanged for years. Occasionally, municipalities are designed with innovative technologies and modern building palettes, offering a community a distinguished beacon.

The Michigan Police Station in Michigan City, Illinois, replaced a previously outdated, half a century’s old structure, with a sustainable modern alternative. The architects at American Structurepoint’s Architecture + Interiors Group describe, “…this state-of-the-art law enforcement facility provides a long-term public safety solution for officers, promotes energy efficiency, and improves the quality of life in the Eastport neighborhood.”
