"We wanted the building to have a clean and sophisticated look.  The Citadel panels helped accentuate the design vision."

The new Highlands Oncology Group cancer treatment center in Rogers, Arkansas provides a comprehensive approach to cancer treatment in a state-of-the-art facility. The first floor includes diagnostic and treatment areas and the second floor offers a 5,000 sq. ft. chemotherapy suite complete with four private treatment rooms.

The project required special construction measures due to the necessary seven-foot-thick walls and roof and neutron-shielded doors for radiation absorption.The physician owners insisted that the center be designed to create a pleasant, welcoming environment for patients. Design for the project was provided by Core Architects, Rogers, AR.

Approximately 15,000 sq. ft. of Citadel’s Envelope 2000® metal composite material (MCM) was used to create aesthetic appeal as well as meet budget requirements. The Citadel panels were installed using the Reveal (RV) System, a field assembled attachment method utilizing perimeter moldings.According to Core Architects president Robert Kelly, “Before we got involved, the owners had originally involved a design/build firm that couldn’t bring the project in on budget. Working closely with Crossland Construction Company, the GC, we redesigned the project and not only brought it in ‘on the money’ but also gave the owners more square footage.

The Citadel cladding, along with other elements, helped do that.”Approximately 300 Citadel panels were installed on the upper areas of the building and interface with brick at the base. “We wanted the building to have a clean and sophisticated look,” Kelly said. “The Citadel panels helped accentuate the design vision.”The Citadel panels were installed by Crossland Construction Company, Inc., Columbus, KS. The Citadel sales representative was J.D. Day & Company, Overland Park, KS.
