Reflector Panels 

University of Massachusetts
University Crossing – Campus Center Project
Lowell, MA

CW Keller Panel Installation:


The reflector panels, as they are called by the University of Massachusetts-Lowell, reside in the University Crossing Campus Center. “This student center is designed to serve as the ‘living room’ of the UMass Lowell community. As the new home to our student clubs and organizations, it will be a place designed to foster student engagement, entrepreneurship and social activism, and to encourage service to others,” said Associate Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Larry Siegel. The reflector panels serve both as art and as a means of reflecting and disseminating natural light flowing in through the high windows in the main gathering area.

Panel in the Rigidized fabricating department:


"This project represents the culmination of many efforts here at Rigidized Metals: the fabrication and lamination of deep textured panels of a very complex geometry, and the extensive collaboration and cooperation between multiple designers and our fabrication team. The panels are stunning, and both the architect and the Rigidized fabrication team should be very pleased and proud of their efforts." Chip Skop Director of Sales & Marketing

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."
