The new 58,000-sf student union at Northern Kentucky University in Highland Heights creates a crossroads for student, faculty, and staff activities. University administrators sought a "unique and appealing identity" that would raise the architectural standard and set a new direction for excellence on the campus, according to Michael Jacobs, principal of design firm Omni Architects, Lexington, Ky. Three thousand sf of Rheinzink preweathered blue-gray horizontal reveal panels and 500 sf of blue-gray perforated reveal panels were specified. The panels were fabricated and installed by JC Industries, Louisville. General contractor: Messer Construction Co., Cincinnati.
