Project Spotlight: Teletech Building

ECMS recently completed this design-build project on the Teletech Building in Moundsville, WV. Our team worked alongside JD&E Construction Services to install 150 sq. ft of Flat Lock Zinc Diamond Panels and (2) Zinc Column Covers.

Chris Beall and Greigh Richardson, both ECMS employees, did an outstanding job on the installation and even helped fabricate the materials used on this facility. The two were integral throughout the design process with our sheet metal shop and we are grateful for the hard work they put in to make this project a success!

ECMS Celebrates World Autism Awareness Day

On April 2nd, the East Coast Metal Systems team showed their support on World Autism Awareness Day by wearing the color blue! Blue is not only the color associated with “Autism Speaks“ , but it also can symbolize a feeling of calm and acceptance in a world that can be very loud and challenging sometimes. Way to go, East Coast!

Women in Construction Week

During the week of March 7-13th, East Coast Metal Systems took to social media to show support for our “women in construction!”

The focus of Women in Construction (WIC) Week is to highlight women as a viable component of the construction industry. WIC Week also provides an occasion for the NAWIC’s thousands of members across the country to raise awareness of the opportunities available for women in the construction industry and to emphasize the growing role of women in the industry. We are grateful to have each and every one of the women on our team in ALL of our locations!

ECMS: A Proud Partner on this Year’s US Building of the Year!

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 Celebrates National Engineers Week

This year, National Engineers Week was celebrated February 21-27, and we have some of the very best engineers here at East Coast!

The purpose of National Engineers Week is to call attention to the contributions to society that engineers make and it is also a time for engineers to emphasize the importance of learning math, science, and technical skills. Without their expertise, our company wouldn’t be where it is today. Thank you to our Engineering team for their continued hard work!

MCA Chairman’s Award in Education Selects ECMS Project

The Metal Construction Association (MCA) awarded its Chairman’s Award in the education (primary and secondary) category to a member company that contributed to the creation of Northridge Local Schools in Dayton, Ohio. Winners were announced February 3, 2021, at MCA’s Winter Meeting. East Coast Metal Systems provided Secure-Scan 3D Laser Scanning services and fabricated 243 metal composite panels for this project.

This is a very distinct project because of the Iceberg feature that goes along with their mascot, a polar bear! Northridge Local Schools will always be one of our favorite projects to watch come to life!

East Coast Metal Systems Helps Feed Our Youth

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!
