Living Stone Construction

Spencer Cancer Center, Opelika, AL

About this project:

The freestanding two-story cancer center is adjacent to the main hospital campus. Built on a moderately sloping wooded site, the upper level provides eye-level views from the medical treatment area to the existing tree canopy and allows patient to enter on both levels.

“The design is contemporary in nature,” explains McCurry, who grew up in Opelika. It features a stone base, and aluminum and glass on the top story. Clerestory, the high section of wall with windows above eye level, provides abundant natural light.

How was it installed?

Geolam’s Vertigo 5010 was used for this project to provide the look of stained wood and provide long term performance with low maintenance & GREAT color retention.

Simple installation-no furring strips or clips. Just screws into studs and butt the end joints together.

GREAT for soffits – only weighs .80# plf. Up to 18’ available

Wood cladding is a popular way of providing an attractive finish for any outdoor construction or building: Geolam cladding products offer the quality, feel and characteristics of wood, but they are more durable, and are environmentally friendly.
