The new patient tower for the University of Missouri presented a compilation of unique challenges for HOK Architects. Based on site logistics and existing facilities, a full bed-depth brick veneer solution utilizing a unitized rainscreen system was the solution of choice.
The only issue was that the system had not been previously engineered or constructed in actual practice before. Architectural Wall Systems and Seedorff Masonry were retained to work in collaboration with the design team to develop a custom solution for the exterior envelope.
Utilizing a design-bid-build delivery system, JE Dunn provided construction management services for the facility.
Fully assembled in Strawberry Point, IA at the warehouse facilities of Seedorff Masonry, 324 panels were fabricated and shipped to Columbia, MO where AWS team erected the panels on the structure.
