Sam Houston State University's Department of Facilities Planning and Construction, in consultation with the SHSU Art Committee and Lawrence Group Architects, has targeted the following potential art opportunities within the Student Health & Counseling Center.
CALL No. 1: Exterior GUARD RAILING PANELS
Along the north facade of the building, at the exterior covered patio, there is a 100’ long guardrail system which has been designed to include a 14 gauge sheet metal infill panel, approximately 3’-0” high. The base bid for this panel is painted galvanized perforated metal with an add alternate for powder coated finish.
· Art Opportunity:
o Substitute the off the shelf perforated metal panels with metal panels with custom water jet cut designs. The artist’s designs and patterns must be transferred to a digital file that is compatible with the metal fabricator’s digital machinery. All cutouts must meet code required 4” maximum ball rule and must create a panel that meets code required horizontal load requirements. The architect is available to assist the artist in better understanding these requirements.
o The Building’s Construction Budget will include the materials and fabrication for the perforated sheet metal panels. The artists budget must include the premium to substitute off-the-shelf perforated material with the digitally cut out designs.
