APRIL 2019 – East Coast Metal Systems (ECMS) would like to highlight a recently-completed, multi-million dollar project. The Omni Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky, is now the tallest and most luxurious hotel in the city.
Construction for this 30-story skyscraper began in March of 2017 and was officially completed by March of 2018. ECMS fabricated 23,000 square feet of metal composite panels in both custom Graphite Grey Mica and Platinum finishes using the EC-200 Dry Joint Rainscreen System™ as well as custom extruded aluminum angles, tees, and tubes finished to match the panels.
“Our metal fabrication shop is full of skilled workers who care about the quality of our products,” said ECMS Engineering Manager John Hyde. “When you look at a structure like this, it’s amazing to see their work on the completed project.”
In addition, Kalkreuth Roofing and Sheet Metal (KRSM) installed 90,000 square feet of PVC roofing and 110,000 square feet of decorative ballast.
“Our crews did a great job on this project,” said Project Manager Joe Minor. “When we work on any project, especially of this size and location in a busy city center, we make every effort to coordinate well with other trades and cause as little disruption to the surrounding businesses as possible.”
APRIL 2019- East Coast Metal Systems (ECMS) Director of Operations Steve Kerr and Estimator DJ Hores attended the annual Mid-Atlantic Glass Association (MGA) Glass Expo at Martin’s Crosswinds in Greenbelt, Maryland.
