Located on a 40-acre expressway, the North American headquarters for Zurich Insurance Group were designed to reflect the company’s global reach and world-class stature. Architects sought the help of Hughes Group to supply panels that could reflect both strength and stability— both central to the Zurich business model. Hughes Group supplied 37,000 square feet of natural woodgrain Prodema Panels in Rustic. VaproShield’s RevealShield SA Self-Adhered was installed behind the open joint cladding due to its exceptional UV stability. The entire system was secured with thermal spacer clips by Cascadia and a custom aluminum sub-framing system by Centerline Architectural Supply.
