Zahner provided the contractors with pre-patinated copper with artistic variation. For these interior panels, Zahner used Star Blue Copper, a custom patina on copper. Zahner developed the pre-weathered copper panels in the fabrication and patination facility in Kansas City, and delivered the panels to the installers in Dallas.
