Project Name: Basketball Development Center, University of Connecticut Location: Storrs, CT Architect: Populous Architects Material: 3 mm Aluminum System: TAKTL Plank Panels Construction: 2013-2014 Area of Panels: 6,000 sq. ft.
The project was a 78,000 sqft basketball practice facility and Hall of Fame designed by Populous Architects. The building design featured two prominent elements clad in textured Ultra High Performance Concrete ( UHPC ) from TAKTL. The architect wanted a concealed fastening system for the plank panels so the reed texture would appear uninterrupted. Rainscreen Solutions LLC designed and provided the panel sub-frame and custom clips to conceal the mechanical fasteners and allow for independent installation of the panels.
