Rigidized® Metals Corporation Adds Aesthetic Appeal to Cedar Rapids, IA Federal Courthouse 



Located in Northern Iowa, the Cedar Rapids Federal Courthouse needed a weather-resistant, more aesthetically appealing facade. The goal for this project was to provide a wide range of shading with bronze colored stainless steel to give a more positive appearance.

Rigidized® Metals Corporation provided the 14-gauge, bronze-colored 304 stainless steel rolled with Rigidized® Metals’ pattern 6WL®, chosen for its enhanced aesthetics due to light diffusion.



Colored stainless steel holds up to external elements much better than colored anodized aluminum. LIC coloring method was used to provide the various shades being sought after.

Rigidized® Metals at Tex-Fab 14 


From Chip Skop the Director of Sales and Marketing:

"Last week we attended the TEX-FAB 2014 in Austin, TX. The conference was very well attended, with many excellent contacts made. One of the main features of the conference was none other than 3xLP. The work of Chris Romano and Nick Bruscia (from the University of Buffalo, School of Architecture and Planning) and RMC was recognized as groundbreaking. The latest iteration of 3xLP was exhibited at the event, and Nick and Chris gave a well-attended and well received talk on the process of taking the project from concept to completion. They were very gracious with their praise of RMC and our ability to collaborate, interact, and execute."
