The Helios Education Foundation’s Education Campus was designed by Architekton to be an elegantly angular, desert-hued, post-secondary education facility that serves as a beacon of excellence and a critical resource for the education community. The Education Campus is the permanent home to the Foundation and brings together four of Helios’ strategic partners: College Success Arizona, Expect More Arizona, Teach for America - Phoenix and Achieve60AZ.
As the first impression for many students, staff and visitors arriving at the Education Campus, the parking garage required an exterior-grade ceiling that met aesthetic, performance and sustainability goals. The design called for large, rectangular metal panels with a bright, attractive, modern appearance to conceal the exposed structure and handle expected wind pressures. Delivering the desired welcome, Architekton specified Rockfon® metal ceiling panels in heavy-duty, steel ceiling suspension systems.
