NC Museum of Natural Resources

Raleigh, NC

Overly created a custom stainless steel rainscreen system to clad the exterior of this 80 foot diameter sphere designed to represent the planet Earth and house the North Carolina Museum of Natural History’s amphitheater. The Overly system continued to the interior using painted aluminum plate to match the stainless steel exterior panels. Overly also provided the curved secondary structural steel framing to which its panels were mounted. The vertical panels for the sphere were 8 feet in length and the horizontal panels were manufactured in varied sizes to achieve the desired curvature effect. The Earth’s land masses were individually printed on vinyl wraps and applied to the Overly panels.

The project was managed using Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology. All components were digitally modeled and coordinated with other trades. Digital components and patterns were exported to CNC cutting and forming processes for panel manufacturing, achieving 99% accuracy for all fabricated components.

University of Cincinnati DAAP Renovation

Cincinnati, OH

DAAP Facade Restoration — Designed by renowned architect Peter Eisenman, and opened in 1996, the Aronoff Center linked together the previously existing Alms, DAAP and Wolfson buildings to form the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art, & Planning. When the original EFIS façade failed, Overly was selected by the University and local architect KZF Designs to design a rainscreen panel system that could meet the structure’s performance challenges while maintaining the architectural integrity of the original design. Using computer modeling and CNC fabrication processes, Overly manufactured thousands of one of a kind painted aluminum panel assemblies to clad the 70,000 square feet exterior of the Aronoff Center. With its hundreds of reveals, corners, offsetting and intersecting planes, the Overly façade provides a fresh and modern look to a very unique structure.

Milwaukee Art Museum Addition

Milwaukee, WI

Located on the shore of Lake Michigan, the new 125,000-sq. ft. addition to the Milwaukee Art Museum has received several coveted architectural awards and has been featured in several box office films since it first opened in October of 2001. The building's stunning design by world-renowned architect/engineer Santiago Calatrava is complemented by its excellent construction which was overseen by local architectural firm Kahler Slater and construction manager, CG Schmidt. The project features sweeping architectural finishes like free-form concrete buttresses and white metal exteriors including the roof. All three Overly roofing systems were integrated on this project. Also, portions of the Quadracci Pavilion wall, The Brise Soleil, and Reiman Bridge that links the museum with the Milwaukee's downtown district are adorned with several of Overly's signature wall panel systems.

San Jose International Airport (NC)

San Jose, CA

A Gensler creation, the North Concourse land-side exterior is clad in both convex and concave curved 1/8” thick aluminum plate system by Overly. The custom parallelogram shaped panels developed specifically for this project are both perforated and solid and were post coated after fabrication and welding of internal stiffening ribs with an anodized or painted finish. Attachment brackets were engineered and designed to accommodate minor variations in primary steel along the quarter mile long concourse. A three dimensional "eyebrow" series of panels using a wet joint design curve high above the perforated "sails", which diffuse the interior lighting at night and capture the essence of the high tech Silicone Valley.

San Jose International Airport (Term. B)

San Jose, CA

A Fentress Architects design, the new Terminal B facade mimics the North Concourse's use of the curved 1/8” thick aluminum plate system by Overly. These custom shaped parallelogram and perforated panels received factory welded internal stiffening ribs and were finished using a powder coat painted finish. Attachment brackets were engineered and designed to accommodate minor variations in primary steel. The perforated panel design diffuses the interior lighting at night and captures the essence of the high tech Silicone Valley.
