Westin Anaheim Resort

SSM has completed work our parking garage scope on the new Westin Anaheim Resort Hotel.  As the hotel is nearly complete, this $245 million dollar hotel has 613 rooms and a 1,100 car parking garage featuring cladding components by SSM.

The parking structure – located at the intersection of W. Katella Avenue & S. West Street –  is almost 400 feet long and nearly 70 feet high with the North Elevation being the dominate public view of the garage.

Two other elevations, the East and West, are both 185 feet long.  The typical panel bay is almost 45 feet tall by 35 feet wide.  In total, SSM provided cladding for approximately 36,000 square feet of surface area.

Shamrock Trading Corp.

A growing company that oversees transportation services, Shamrock Trading Corp. will soon be moving employees into their new campus.  This is the first of three planned office buildings, an eight story office tower with a 1,000 vehicle + parking structure.

SSM will be utilizing our 900 Series Panel System as a solution to clad the building.  This proven and tested system is robust, meeting all open joint rain screen criteria, is fabricated from .090″ aluminum – providing superior flatness over thinner gauge solutions.

We are very excited to introduce this panel system and we ask you to stay tuned for more information in the new year!

Overland One & Two Office Development

Located at the corner of Nall Avenue and 110th Street, the Overland One & Two project features a pair of multi-story buildings being developed by VanTrust.

Burns & McDonnell, performing both the Architectural and the Contractor functions, brought SSM into the project on a Design Assist basis.  Once the exterior cladding components were designed and the various details were completed, SSM went into fabrication and installation mode to work towards project completion.

Executing an exterior cladding system of both ACM panels and painted flat seamed shingles, SSM fabricated all components from our computer models – allowing us to start fabrication prior to field measurements being taken.

Look for our exterior cladding components to be completed in May of 2018 and the buildings to open later in the summer.
