Constructed on the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Indian Reservation in Eagle Butte, S.D., the new Cheyenne River Health Center services 9,300 residents in the area. This 138,542-square-foot facility features multiple roofing systems, wall panel systems and accessories, including Firestone UltraPly TPO XR, ISO 95+ GL insulation and various UNA-CLAD metal products.
The structures standout element is unquestionably its entrance, designed to invoke the resemblance of a tepee. Featuring a column with a beautiful ceramic tile mural on the front, 24-gauge UNA-CLAD Flat Lock tiles in a Classic Copper finish were installed in a diamond pattern around the remainder of the column. Flat-Lock tiles in a Terra Cotta finish were also mounted on the round-shaped exterior walls surrounding the west entrance.
Leading up to the main entrance, UNA-CLAD UC-6 Double-Lock Standing Seam Roofing Panels in a Colonial Red finish were chosen for the covered walkways and the side canopies were designed in a round fashion. In light of this, the roofing and soffit panels were custom tapered in order to maintain the integrity of the curved design. The UC-6 roofing panels were used in conjunction with a UNA-CLAD UC-500 Flush Panel System to create copper color awnings over eight separate side entrances.
The main building of the health center was covered with a tan, 60-mil fully adhered Firestone UltraPly TPO XR roofing system over two layers of 2.5 inch ISO 95+ GL insulation, with some areas utilizing ISO 95+ GL Tapered Insulation. Overlooking the TPO roof, a row of upper windows let natural sunlight in the building. UC-601 UNA-CLAD Exposed Fastener Panels in a Sierra Tan finish were mechanically attached to the exterior walls to encase this window area. UC-6 panels were used over this section of windows to help complete the buildings sleek new look.
Upon completion, the project was issued a 15-year Firestone Red Shield Warranty.
