The new Tacoma Art Museum opened in 2003, doubling it's square footage from the old museum and creating new flexible gallery space for it's collection. Zahner provided the custom facade for the building, which was designed by Antoine Predock Architect PC.
The building features several of Zahner's proprietary systems and processes, including the Inverted Seam Wall and Roof panel system. Use of the Inverted Seam system provides insulation, rain screen, and water-channeling, all on a minimal surface. The surface of the museum includes 36,000 square feet of 14ga. Stainless Steel with a Shadow finished surface.
El Paso Courthouse
Designed by Antoine Predock Architects, the award-winning courthouse in El Paso features a Zahner-manufactured copper facade. Officially dedicated in early September of 2010, the construction of the courthouse was made possible by American Recovery and Reinvestment Act investments by GSA. The courthouse has been recognized around the United States for both its architectural qualities and its environmentally innovative design.The building won the Texas Downtown Association's President's Award for Best New Construction, which recognizes construction excellence in downtown or commercial districts. Judges were impressed by the use of materials, which paid homage to the copper industry of El Paso and how the design of the building connected with the surrounding downtown.
