Cheyenne River Health Center
Eagle Butte, South Dakota
Constructed on the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Indian Reservation in Eagle Butte, S.D., the new Cheyenne River Health Center services 9,300 residents in the area. This 138,542-square-foot facility features multiple roofing systems, wall panel systems and accessories, including Firestone UltraPly TPO XR, ISO 95+ GL insulation and various UNA-CLAD metal products.
The structures standout element is unquestionably its entrance, designed to invoke the resemblance of a tepee. Featuring a column with a beautiful ceramic tile mural on the front, 24-gauge UNA-CLAD Flat Lock tiles in a Classic Copper finish were installed in a diamond pattern around the remainder of the column. Flat-Lock tiles in a Terra Cotta finish were also mounted on the round-shaped exterior walls surrounding the west entrance.
Leading up to the main entrance, UNA-CLAD UC-6 Double-Lock Standing Seam Roofing Panels in a Colonial Red finish were chosen for the covered walkways and the side canopies were designed in a round fashion. In light of this, the roofing and soffit panels were custom tapered in order to maintain the integrity of the curved design. The UC-6 roofing panels were used in conjunction with a UNA-CLAD UC-500 Flush Panel System to create copper color awnings over eight separate side entrances.
The main building of the health center was covered with a tan, 60-mil fully adhered Firestone UltraPly TPO XR roofing system over two layers of 2.5 inch ISO 95+ GL insulation, with some areas utilizing ISO 95+ GL Tapered Insulation. Overlooking the TPO roof, a row of upper windows let natural sunlight in the building. UC-601 UNA-CLAD Exposed Fastener Panels in a Sierra Tan finish were mechanically attached to the exterior walls to encase this window area. UC-6 panels were used over this section of windows to help complete the buildings sleek new look.
Upon completion, the project was issued a 15-year Firestone Red Shield Warranty.
