Metal Sales™ provided more than 67,000 total square feet of metal wall and roof panels for the Redding School of the Arts in Redding, CA, giving the facility a smart and modern look worthy of its high-profile, high performance mission.
Redding School of the Arts is a public charter school for grades K-8. It is the first new school campus in the world to receive Platinum certification under the LEED for Schools 2009 standards and is expected to achieve Net-Zero. Additionally, the school is designed to achieve the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) certification, a national movement to improve student performance and enhance the education experience by building the best possible schools.
The design of Redding School of the Arts was based on two essential ideas: First, the learning environment should create opportunities to show students, teachers and parents the importance of sustainability. Second, students should be inspired to learn in creative, colorful and fun surroundings. To help achieve these two ambitious functional and aesthetic goals, the design team turned to Metal Sales.
