vertical solid surface

Inova Loudon Hospital

What does it take to successfully manage the millwork package for a $200M+ healthcare project? There is no single ingredient that defines a successful large millwork project. The overall process has to be complete and well-defined. From initial contract to project completion, there are many steps in between. These steps will define whether the project is successful or not.

Have you ever received a submittal and asked yourself “is this company looking at the right specifications”? Have you ever received shop drawings and wondered “do these people even know what an AWI standard is”? Every General Contractor has been in a situation where they have received shop drawings for approval and the casework is on the wrong side of a wall or something similar.

On every large project, the schedule is one of the most difficult things to control for a project manager. It can be difficult to fabricate when the time between field measuring and installation is compressed. When this is not planned correctly other trades can get pushed as well as occupancy deadlines. What happens when your millworker cannot meet the deadline for completed installation?

SOLID SURFACE IS REACHING NEW HEIGHTS. These Corian® and 3Form® walls were fabricated for United Therapeutics.

SCULPTCOR® corner end detailSolid surface thermoforming technologies allow for a myriad of complex forms to be created such as a topographic map. The linchpin to creating extreme contours is 5 axis CNC machining. 3D CAD software such as SolidWorks ® can be utilized to model practically any surface texture. Designers are continuing to push the boundaries with innovative surfaces that enhance interior architectural space.

Many times design professionals submit drawings for bid to General Contractors without specifying an appropriate wall cladding product in the architectural specification. Designers run the risk of installing contoured vertical wall surfaces made from molded gypsum plaster or thin plastic. The costs required for maintenance of these ineffective wall cladding systems required an entire new approach.

In response, we focused our business around thermoforming from the beginning. ASST has created a truly “niche” business, catering to advanced fabrication solutions for commercial construction. We created SCULPTCOR ® textured wall cladding to provide a durable solution unlike anything on the market today. Manufactured with 100% solid surface acrylic, this is an anti-bacterial wall cladding that is made to last. ASST’s proprietary mounting system allows for field adjustment and individual panel removal for maintenance. It is ASST’s legacy to continue assisting design professionals with thermoforming project challenges other fabricators avoid. Be sure to contact us with your next solid surface project!

Healthcare interiors are seeing an increase in vertical solid surface. Owners, architects and designers alike are realizing the long term cost benefits of using solid surface vertically.

In the past, design professionals have had few choices for wall cladding in high traffic healthcare environments. Thin plastic wall protection systems or metal panels are not easily maintained and once damaged, need replacement. Healthcare wall cladding made of thin plastic sheets are neither antibacterial nor can withstand the abuse of multiple impacts from cart traffic. Everyone is familiar with seeing wall cladding damage throughout a healthcare facility. Costly maintenance of these wall cladding systems calls for a new approach. A better approach with a durable solid surface vertical solution that is inherently anti-bacterial to prevent the spread of infection.

To aesthetically as well as functionally address this problem, ASST created SCULPTCOR ® textured surfaces. Manufactured with 100% solid surface acrylic, this is an anti-bacterial wall cladding that is made to last. ASST developed the patented technology for texturing solid surface sheet materials. ASST’s proprietary mounting system allows for field adjustment and individual panel removal for maintenance. We invite you to contact us to discuss your next healthcare wall cladding project. Going Beyond for our customers is of prime importance!

ASST is uniquely positioned to fulfill all aspects of your project. Whatever you need, ASST can build it to the exact specifications, in a safe manner and to the finest quality standards you expect. Even our EMR safety rating is outstanding at .793! We look forward to Going Beyond to address your exciting project challenges. Contact us now online or call us at 717-630-1251.
