The Buffalo Thunder Resort, in New Mexico, is the new project utilizing Flex-C Trac from Flex-Ability Concepts. Located 12 miles north of Santa Fe, N.M., and sited on 587 acres, the resort is designed to be a Four-Star destination and includes a 150,000 square foot casino, a 390-room Hilton and complete luxury and conference amenities. The resort opened its doors this past August and also includes a golf course and full-service spa.
Approximately 7,000 linear feet of Flex-C Trac was utilized to create spectacular theming elements, soffits and radiuses, but the primary use of Flex-C Trac was in ceiling and soffit applications.
“We’ve used Flex-C Trac in the past and like the benefits of it,” Smith said. “The structural capabilities of the 16 gauge Flex-C Trac were extremely important in our decision to use the product. This kept us from having to bend and/or cut metal of the same thickness, which would have been very difficult and time consuming.”
