“The most difficult part of the project was to incorporate custom window trim and copings into the pre-manufactured wall panels,” said Warren Roofing President Trevor Cost.

This three-story medical office building is located in the Park West development. Fresenius Medical Care occupies two separate spaces in the Gateway building. The first-floor practice provides space for outpatient dialysis treatment. The build-out included a dialysis area with 16 treatment bays, a nurse station, conference rooms, staff lounge and lockers, reception area, and water treatment room.

It includes a home therapy suite with seven training rooms, administrative office space, a training/conference room, patient consultation room, break area, and tech repair room.

For the project, Warren Roofing used Zalmag, a galvanized coating on steel that consists of 11 percent aluminum, 3 percent magnesium, and zinc. The coating weathers from silver to bluish gray over a few months of exposure to the elements. It arrests corrosion and requires little maintenance.
