Case Study

The first-ever Cambria Suites hotel opened in Boise, ID and utilizes approximately 12,000 sq. ft. of Citadel Architectural Products' Envelope 2000® metal composite material panels. Cambria Suites is a brand of Choice Hotels International which franchises more than 5,300 hotels throughout the United States. Approximately 50 Cambria Suites hotels are under development in 21 states nationwide.

The Citadel panels were finished in clear anodized and attached using Citadel's progressive Reveal (RV) System. The RV System offers superior flatness and durability and is field assembled for greater value. Installation of the Citadel system was done by Hobson Fabricating, Inc., Boise. "I love it," said J.P. Riley, project manager and superintendent. "It's easy. It's quick. There's no shop drawing lead time like with other ACM products. I just fabricate everything on-site. It makes the installation process very easy and efficient. I can do whatever needs to be done in as little time as possible. If something gets messed up, we don't have to deal with calling back to get it redone. It's 100% us. I love the fact that everything is fabricated on-site."

The project utilized mixed materials. The Citadel panels interfaced with both masonry and EIFS. "There were a lot of inside/outside corners other than 90's," according to Riley. "And we wrapped numerous small 2x2 and 3x3 columns long ways. That required a vertical seam and then a horizontal seam about halfway up. That was a little tricky but the system is really simple and straight-forward." Design for the project was provided by Minds Eye Architecture, Charlotte, NC. The Citadel distributor was Pacific Architectural Products, Inc., Clackamas, OR.
