UT School of Nursing Health Science Center "building is expected to use 41% less energy than a conventional, minimally code-compliant building. Due to the building's undesirable orientation, harsh environmental conditions, and demanding program requirements, each of the four elevations and the fifth facade, the roof, uses unique strategies to accept desired daylight and reject unwanted heat. Three vertical atria, a horizontal atrium, a breezeway, and perimeter operable windows provide occupants with natural light and ventilation and connect the University of Texas health care building to its site and environment."
Centria/Proclad V-Trac was installed by National Panel Systems, and the "Flatlock" was installed by Universal Sheet Metal. The FlatLock material is custom anodized aluminum with a 95%+ Post Consumer Content, called the beer can alloy.
