Police work is challenging and can be even more cumbersome when operating from offices the size of closets and without the proper technology. An expanded Rock Hill Law Center changed these work conditions for the municipal staff in Rock Hill, S.C. The new look of the space was completed with Dri-Design Embossed Panels, bridging the original structure to the addition.

“The metal achieved a complimentary transition between the precast wall panels of the existing building and the decorative split-faced block that was used in the new expansion,” says Ivan Mccorkle, LEED AP BD+C, transportation project manager for the city of Rock Hill.

Architect Little Diversified Consulting Inc., Charlotte, N.C., used the metal panels as a focal point around the entrance of the building to welcome visitors to the center. Achelpohl Roofing, Prosperity, S.C., installed 694-square-feet of the wall panels in Bone White. Embossed Panels allow a three-dimensional accent to be created in almost any shape or feature.

The metal panels were selected because they are a low-maintenance product with a variety of color options. The design team and city officials believed they were the right selection to add a fresh feel to the building and complement metal features on the structure, such as the signage.

Brad Zeeff, president of Dri-Design, adds, “Metal brought a modern look to an outdated space. The dimension that Embossed Panels can achieve is an application that, in this case, welcomes visitors to an upgraded space.”

The $1.7-million addition houses administrative offices for the chief of police, professional standards unit and support services major. A multi-purpose training room, meeting/conference rooms and additional restrooms also were included.
