SMU Collins

SMU Collins Executive Center in Dallas, Texas

Designed by Gensler for Southern Methodist University, The Collins Executive Center is a part of the Cox school of business, and serves as a way to connect students with real-world business professionals and entrepreneurs.

Zahner provided the contractors with pre-patinated copper with artistic variation. Zahner's process for developing the patina was based on the Star Blue Patina on copper. Zahner developed the pre-weathered copper panels in the fabrication and patination facility in Kansas Cityu, and delivered the panels to the installers in Dallas.
