During the design phase of the new Westminster Neighborhood Services facility, one of the main goals was to construct a building that would hold up over time and serve the community far into the future. Envelope 2000 metal composite material from Citadel Architectural Products offered the style, color and durability the board was looking for.

Westminster Neighborhood Services is a non-profit organization on the east side of Indianapolis that works with community partners to provide food and clothing to neighborhood families as well as children’s programs that meet nurturing, safety, educational and developmental needs. The 16,620-square-foot facility, which also serves as a neighborhood adult soup kitchen, contains a computer lab, adult classroom, learning center, a store for basic needs and a dining hall.

“It was all about durability,” says Doug Shoemaker of Axis Architecture & Interiors of Indianapolis. “Obviously, they wanted a cost-effective facility they could be proud of over the course of time.”

Regal Blue, one of more than 50 color options offered by Citadel, was a perfect match for the Westminster logo. Shoemaker says the Citadel panels were the “color pops” on the project.

Spohn Associates of Indianapolis, a representative and installer for Citadel, installed 7,884 square feet of Envelope 2000 panels with the Reveal System attachment.

“We’ve used Envelope 2000 on many different projects,” Shoemaker says. “It’s become our standard go-to product. I like the reveals, the detailing and the compatibility with other systems.”

Eric Spohn, president of Spohn Associates says it was another successful installation.
