Patrons utilizing the new 547-space George A. Purefoy Municipal Center parking garage in Frisco, TX will notice and appreciate the unique exterior wrapping the facility. Stylish, yet functional, metal mesh is utilized to meet necessary functions for the garage, including safety for fall protection.
In addition, the mesh provides environmental resistance – shade in the Texas sun – while still maintaining the open and airy feel.
Cambridge’s experience in helping match the style of new construction to existing structures allows for a cohesive look between the existing municipal center and garage. Cambridge’s mesh provides protection over building openings and performs necessary functions for the garage, including fall protection. Large-scaled, flexible open weaves shade and screen the exterior of the garage while providing transparency that facilitates airflow and visibility.
Beyond its aesthetic and shading benefits, the Cambridge mesh system installed at the George A. Purefoy Municipal Parking Garage is 100% recyclable and virtually indestructible, outlasting most other materials in durability. The stainless steel mesh system also holds up incredibly well in various climates, eliminating the need for its repair or replacement. Cambridge offers full system design, engineering and collaboration from concept through installation, and honors a Gross Maximum Pricing model – assuring clients that regardless of how the project’s needs change, Cambridge’s price will not.
Cambridge manufactures 100% recyclable stainless steel entirely in the USA, and is an active member of the USGBC®.
