Formawall Dimension Series insulated metal panels include a factory foamed-in-place core, minimizing insulation gaps, along with a thermal break between the face and liner. The panels offer weather resistance by utilizing pressure equalization along the length of the horizontal joinery. ATMP technology allows Formawall Dimension Series insulated metal panels to provide thermal and moisture protection. Profile Series Ecoscreen Econolap not only integrates with the other panels, but the rainscreen provides an airy aesthetic that blends the building into its surroundings.

The Retrofit

The 520,000-square-foot Sacramento DMV required a complex phased construction because the site improvements needed to take place while the building was occupied and functioning. After 14 years and $130 million, this remodel—the largest remodeling project ever by the California Department of Motor Vehicles—was completed in 2012.

The renovation included complete seismic analysis and retrofit, hazardous-material abatement, new mechanical and electrical systems, new childcare center and cafeteria, new entry and entry plaza, building re-skin and new tenant improvements on each of the building’s six floors. The four major finish elements—glass, aluminum panels, insulated metal panels and composite phenolic panels—were applied differently on each elevation, giving a different appearance from any angle.

The new skin of insulated metal panels and glass is significantly more insulated than the old one, which means reduced heating and cooling costs. The southwest corner has a second skin because it receives the most sunlight, and the design saves energy in winter and summer. Plus, nearly 3,000 solar panels cover the roof in a 479-kW system that is thought to be one of the largest solar arrays on a single building in the Sacramento area.
