Architects for the Schneider National Headquarters project in Green Bay, WI, were looking for a durable product that could be installed quickly for the exterior of the building. The design team and owner chose Natural Stone Panels with Biesanz MDL to meet their needs for this project. Schneider National, Inc. is a premier provider of truckload, logistics and intermodal services. Serving more than two-thirds of the FORTUNE 500® companies, Schneider National offers the broadest portfolio of services in the industry.
Chosen as an alternative to manufactured concrete (precast), Natural Stone Panels provided the design team with many advantages. They were able to choose Biesanz MDL or another stone of their choice; the combined weight of the panels is nearly 30 percent of the weight of typical architectural precast panels, lowering design loads imposed on the building structure; and up to 10 panels could be installed per day – shortening the installation time.
Paired with MDL, the building features more than 12,000 square feet of stone. MDL was chosen for its unmatched versatility, strength and beauty. The combination of Natural Stone Panels with MDL gave the architects and owner peace of mind that the building exterior would stand the test of time.
