Esperanza Health Brighton Park is a marquee project consisting of 9,200 square feet of Alucobond’s Cupral Spectra and 1,200 square feet of OPT Mica Platinum sheets. ECMS fabricated the unique panels utilizing our EC-200 Dry Joint Rainscreen system. This landmark building in Chicago, IL meets the “bold & beautiful” design intent of the project and will most certainly bring bright and energizing vibes to all who visit!

ECMS is participating in the Ohio County Schools Backpack program and has the privilege of sponsoring Bridge Street Middle School in Wheeling, WV. This means they are providing meals for roughly 20 students who are eligible for the food assistance program through the county that would possibly go home to no food on the weekend. They provided a breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as snacks for both days of the weekend.
We are so proud of them for coordinating this and for lending a helping a hand to those in the Wheeling community!
On Friday, February 5th, people across the country wore red to spread awareness for women’s heart disease and risk of stroke. National Wear Red Day is supported by the American Heart Association and National Heart Health Month.
At East Coast Metal Systems’ Headquarters in Triadelphia, WV, our team can be seen showing their support for National Heart Health Month!
In honor of National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day on January 9th, East Coast Metal Systems highlighted one of their several law enforcement projects.
Utilizing our EC-200 Dry Joint Rainscreen System, ECMS fabricated over 8,000 square feet of metal composite material (MCM) for this police headquarters located in Oklahoma City, OK. With both interior and exterior panels, the architect ADG did a great job of adding a modern aesthetic to a building that houses an institution dating back to the mid-1800s. This project was completed a few years ago and is still one of our favorite projects to showcase!
Did you know that last year it was estimated that approximately 550,000 youth and young adults under the age of 23 experienced homelessness for longer than a week? More than half of those individuals were under the age of 18. 50% of homeless youth are unsheltered, either sleeping outside or in a place not meant for human occupancy.
This year on Giving Tuesday, which was December 1st, ECMS supported our local Youth Services System by participating in their annual Sleep Out and raising awareness for an issue that greatly affects our society. In participating in this great community event, Diane Trifonoff and Tiffany Wildern worked together to build a shelter out of cardboard that can be livable. Our theme was “Providing A Roof For The Youth” because so often we forget that something like a roof is a luxury for many of us.
*Our house won “Best Use of Materials” for the Wheeling SleepOut 2020! Way to go, Diane and Tiffany!
