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.

St. Bernard Parish Cultural Arts Center

Chalmette, LA

The St. Bernard Parish School District’s Cultural Arts Center in Chalmette, LA,
serves both the community and the schools. This multi-purpose building and
performing arts theatre was designed by Waggonner & Ball Architects to create an
inspirational building that announced the recovery of the community after Hurricane
Katrina. The building takes the form of a snaking bar that adapts to the limited site
and cradles the curved main theater volume along its edge. Overly provided five
distinctly different panels types for this project, working in unison with the architects,
to ensure that the panel transitions throughout the structure flowed seamlessly.

Los Angeles County Museum of Art

Los Angeles, CA

Overly is proud to have been a participant in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s multi-year transformation that unified and expanded the museum’s campus to integrate its buildings and outdoor spaces into a coherent whole. Working with PGAL architects, Overly engineered and manufactured custom flush seam metal roofing as well as sunshade and rainscreen panels from 18 gauge painted sheet aluminum and 1/8 inch post-painted plate aluminum for several of the museum’s structures, including the Resnick Pavilion’s signature “cantilevered louvers” roofing design, the Broad Contemporary Art Museum (BCAM) and two pedestrian traffic canopies.
