Project DescriptionMetal Sales™ covers the new Lafayette Library and Learning Center in Lafayette, CA with 31,000 square feet of vibrant and durable roofing panels.
The Lafayette Library and Learning Center is a state-of-the-art facility designed to be highly eco-friendly. Some of its most notable green features include a photovoltaic (solar) panel system, very-low ozone depletion refrigerants, vertical fin walls to minimize solar heat gain, aluminum sunshades, large clear coated glass windows and skylights to reduce the need for artificial lighting.
The new 30,000+ square foot library is the largest and most complex public or private project in Lafayette’s history. It features a café, a bookstore, a living media wall, a public art gallery, a separate Children’s Area and Technology Lab. It is within walking distance of schools, senior housing, and several of the community’s neighborhoods. Truly a civic center, the facility serves as a modern and elegant showpiece for the city’s downtown, and is made complete with a stylish Metal Sales roof.
