Student Life Center, Kansas State University, Salina, Kan. Located on the site of the previously closed Schilling Air Force Base, Kansas State University’s satellite campus specializes in aviation and aeronautical stud- ies. The campus’ focal point is a brand new student center, which features approximately 15,000 square feet of Citadel Architectural Products’ Envelope 2000 metal composite material panels to create the desired look. The Silver Metallic panels were installed using the Reveal (RV) System, a fi eld assembled attach- ment method utilizing perimeter moldings. “It’s a technical campus and we wanted to cre-
ate a ‘wow factor’ that would be in keeping with its character,” says Rob Westberg, project architect with The Ebert Mayo Design Group. The Citadel-clad over- hang on the building is symbolic of an aviation wing, according to Westberg. The Citadel panels were also formed to create column covers. Hausman Metal Works installed the Citadel
panels. Westberg was very pleased with the detailed fi nishing of the installation, saying, “They had some real craftsmen working on the job.” The 34,000-square-foot facility offers a gym-
nasium, elevated running track, racquetball court, weight room, lounge, locker rooms and administra- tive spaces. It is an integral part of the fi rst phase of the long-range plan for developing the campus.
