Argus Steel Products' outstanding workmanship won us participation in a number of construction projects at Virginia Commonwealth University. Their student population was increasing at a rapid pace, which required upgrades to campus housing and the VCU architect's specified perforated aluminum for several projects to maintain design continuity between buildings.

At the Broad & Belvedere Student Apartments, perforated aluminum panels completely disguise the fact that there is a fire escape on the back of the building. For this application, the architects chose ½" perforations on 11/16"staggered centers to yield a 48% open area. The perforated panels were powder coated and installed within an aluminum square tubing framework to provide security, ventilation, and light, as well as an extremely attractive appearance. A perforated door at the bottom of the stairs remains locked from the outside for security reasons, but can be easily opened from the inside.

This building, as well as the VCU Honors College dormitory, both benefited from the use of a perforated aluminum skin. In addition to its strength, durability, non-corrosive, and lightweight properties, perforated aluminum provides a low cost solution for creating a visually appealing, modern look, perfect for attracting young students.
