PRODUCTS: SwissPearl® Cem5 fiber cement panels

This Vassar College laboratory building is designed to seamlessly integrate with the natural landscape, scale and campus aesthetic of the College. The “Integrated Science Commons” includes the Bridge for Laboratory Sciences, a gently curving, 82,000-square-foot structure that spans a ravine and stream, providing sweeping, panoramic views of the natural landscape below, while creating a central gathering spot for student activity. Clad in a SwissPearl® Cem5 fiber cement rainscreen and stone, the building’s façade is inspired by the dense, tree-lined landscape and includes “bird-friendly” glass features designed to prevent birds from flying into it.

Installed using Cladding Corp’s F2.10 visible rivet system, the project is currently on track for LEED Silver certification, due in part to the energy-efficient wall design.
