Humane Society Silicon Valley

Milpitas, CA United States


Project Description

Metal Sales™ brings colorful durability to the new Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) Animal Community Center in Milpitas, CA by providing nearly 1,000 square feet of metal panels.

The building’s eco-friendly features include an extensive onsite solar energy generation system, a highly-efficient kennel cleansing system to minimize water usage, stained concrete flooring to reduce the need for chemical cleaning, bioswales to remove pollution from rainwater run-off, and artificial turf to lower irrigation water demand. Metal Sales panels, which are both durable and reflective, contribute to the LEED credits by reducing solar heat into the building and lowering cooling costs. Furthermore, the Metal Sales standard 45 year paint warranty ensures long-lasting quality to minimize costly repairs and repainting.

The $25 million facility spans nearly five acres and was funded through public donations. Its “L” shaped site plan encourages a sense of community as it organizes the building’s many public entrances around a common entry space. For more than 80 years, HSSV has served Silicon Valley and has helped to find homes for more than 500,000 animals. The new building will facilitate improved care for animals, and its colorful metal paneled exterior provides a cheerful environment for employees, volunteers, and community members to enjoy.

Metal Sales 7/8" Corrugated - Wall panels

Metal Sales’ 7/8” Corrugated, 24-gauge panels surrounds the new facility, offering a long-lasting sustainable exterior with a vibrant aesthetic. Five colors were chosen to bring visual interest to the structure, including Copper Penny, Tahoe Blue, Terra Cotta, Hemlock Green, and Jade Green. Like all Metal Sales colors, these are ENERGY STAR ® listed, signifying that they have been proven to substantially contribute to energy savings due to their high solar reflectivity. This is of particular importance for HSSV, as the facility is the first animal shelter in the nation to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
