In an effort to help sustain the beauty of the glass entrance hall of its dance center, while reducing maintenance requirements, the Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA) teams up with Building Beautiful, a glass restoration and protection division of Diamon-Fusion International, to protect the building’s front entryway with the patented Diamon-Fusion coating. The dance, music and science centers is part of a 60,000 square-foot instructional center. The school was able to break ground on this $16.2 million structure, through a series of charitable donations from supporters, whose contributions amounted to $13.6 million.

The capital undertaking was led by campaign co-chairs Marybelle and S. Paul Musco, Sandy Segerstrom Daniels, and OCSA alumnus Matthew Morrison, as well as campaign cabinet co-chairs Doug Garn, and Jerry Mandel, Ph.D. Amongst them were supporters: Julia and George Argyros, Deborah and Larry Bridges, Missy and Chris Callero / The Callero Family Foundation, Kathy and Gary Conrad, Sally and Dan Fleet / Reuben H. Fleet Foundation, Dr. Martha and James Newkirk, Maureen and Mike Mekjian, Julie and Doug Garn, Cynthia and Martin Howard / Howard CDM, Hal and Jeanette Segerstrom Family, as well as Marybelle and S. Paul Musco. Their efforts have literally opened up doors for bright and talented students, looking to nurture their educational development.

OCSA’s instructional center will host a myriad of branches, including: The Arygros Science Center, The Hal & Jeanette Segerstrom Family Music Center, and The Marybelle Musco Dance Center. And that’s just the beginning. Within these centers are seven science labs, 14 dance studios, instrumental music and choir rehearsal facilities, 16 music practice rooms, dressing rooms and storage – all capped by the glass entrance.

The project itself was initiated by Diamon-Fusion International COO, Russell Slaybaugh, who believes that buildings like the one at OCSA make a statement about the owners, supporters and tenants, and as such need to always look their best. Building Beautiful helps accomplish this by cleaning and restoring glass, where necessary, and then applying the Diamon-Fusion patented coating. This patented coating reduces the need for future maintenance, while simultaneously reducing the associated cost and water consumption thereof. With the increasing use of complex geometries in all variety of architectural design the importance of protecting glass surfaces and reducing the maintenance requirements becomes more pertinent as many times those surfaces can be almost impossible to reach.
