Hoag Rawlings Library

Robert Hoag Rawlings Public Library

The new Robert Hoag Rawlings Public Library is a new 109,000 square foot facility built on the site of the original library, using a portion of the existing library. Located in Pueblo Colorado and designed by acclaimed architect Antoine Predock , the building rises five stories to allow view of surrounding moutains and Arkansas Valley. The building’s copper tones allow it to be absorbed into its natural regional landscape.

The copper wall panels were 30 inches wide by 142 inches tall and number 1545 wall panels and 739 soffit. The building elevations were completely laid out as a digital model for accurate layout of custom panel expansion joints.

A total of 1,545 wall panels and 739 soffit panels were utilized. The copper panels were custom manufactured from 1.5mm thick copper plates and installed using our Inverted Seam™ Wall System. The facade is clad in a darkened custom patinated panel system using the Dirty Penny™ Patina on Copper, an artistic patina with significant variation.
