DC Bilingual

Washington, DC

What better place to showcase our custom fabrication and design capabilities than by partnering with Austrian manufacturer, Fundermax, to deliver this stunning exterior for the DC Bilingual charter school expansion in Washington, DC. Alliance provided custom perforated wall panels along with sunshade fins to the 27,000 square footprint expansion. These custom fabricated exterior and interior Fundermax Phenolic panels detail a herringbone pattern designed by Hord Coplan Macht with an “Amazon” woodgrain finish that promotes a modern aesthetic while maintaining energy efficiency. Supporting the phenolic wall panels, Alliance also installed an ECO thermally broken rainscreen system. To promote better mechanical efficiency for rooftop units and outputs, Alliance installed Roofscreen VisionGuard aluminum louvers, and Construction Specialties wall lovers.
