ISSUES

1)Renovating the school to accommodate the population growth of Exeter Township.

2) Working within a limited budget to create a uniform look between the existing design and the improved administrative offices, lobbies, desktops, classrooms, instruction room, cafeteria, science labs, library and music suite.

3) Choosing a durable, versatile wall cladding material that stands up to the daily wear and tear of high school hallways and lobbies.


CHALLENGES

1) Successfully blending the style of the existing lobby areas with surrounding walls and décor.

2) Constructing new columns and column bases to form a consistent look throughout the school’s existing décor.

3) Identifying a cost-effective, high-performance substitute for floor-to-ceiling wall panels.

 

SOLUTIONS

1) Choosing a surfacing material with a vast color selection to match the current wall cladding and achieve design continuity throughout the building.

2) Identifying a product with the design flexibility to reconstruct defects in existing wall panels.

3) Selecting a surface that is durable, cost-effective and easy to maintain.


BENEFITS

1) With a wide range of colors, a variety of aesthetics, and an attractive, seamless appearance, DuPont™ Corian® solid surfaces offer endless design options.

2) Corian® is a low-maintenance material that offers a long-term, cost-effective solution for high-traffic areas.

3) The versatility of Corian® allows for unlimited design flexibility, in this case, to create custom columns and column bases, edge treatments, wall cladding and other design details.
