Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion at Saint Vincent College, Latrobe, Pa. The Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion is named after donors Sis and Herman Duprés and designed to refl ect the hospitality of the Bene- dictine monks at Saint Vincent, a Benedictine school. The two-story building sits atop a hill on campus and its front is marked by a glass atrium and doorway arch. Designed to welcome visi- tors to campus, the science pavilion’s exterior roof features 16,500 square feet of Dutch Seam (MRD150) panels and 5,100 square feet of 2-inch Tapered Field-Lok (FLT195) panels under the photovoltaic panels, both from ATAS Interna- tional Inc. Both the Dutch Seam and Field-Lok panels are 0.040-inch aluminum in Champagne. ATAS also supplied its 0.040-inch PC Snap-On System (PCP999) in Champagne for the roof of the indoor planetarium. “Aluminum was selected for its longevity and

The $39 million science pavilion is 60 percent
lab space, and houses the Herbert W. Boyer School of Natural Sciences, Mathematics and Computing, as well as classrooms, computer labs, lounges, a lecture hall and an indoor planetarium. The facility is pending LEED Gold status.
