The 165,700-sf Cal Poly University Recreation Center at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, Calif., opened in June to students, faculty, and the community. The curved roof of the facility is made of Kalzip 65/400 steel materials. The facility uses 39,000 sf of straight materials, 26,000 sf of convex and concave product, and 2,000 sf of perforated materials, all with a bright silver PVDF surface. The perforated steel wraps downward on the building wall, acting as a screen that reduces the need for interior lighting during the day by allowing soft light to enter the building, while also shielding occupants from direct sunlight.
