MCM Helps Transform An Empty Lot Into A New Clinic

This clinic wanted its building to reflect its own mission: a center based on community, including multi-purpose communal spaces for educational programs.

The design intent was to liberate the definitions of interior and exterior applications. Metal composite material (MCM) helped achieve this with a prismatic finish which allows for the color to shift with the light’s angle, giving the metal panels the appearance of fluidity and energy.

Metal Men Never Retire, They Just Construct A New Beginning

As we congratulate Jeff Henry’s appointment as our new executive director, we also give gratitude to Karl Hielscher for his service as MCA’s executive director for the past 4 years. During his tenure, Hielscher strengthened the association’s strategic direction, helped grow overall membership, and developed technical and educational resources for the industry, including bulletins, white papers, and education seminars.

We wish Hielscher the best in his retirement and appreciate all of his accomplishments throughout his career and on behalf of our association.
