Children’s Hospital New Orleans, a non-profit children’s hospital located in New Orleans, LA, recently began a $300 million multi-phase campus transformation to include a new skybridge, exterior renovations to sections of the hospital’s facade, new additions to accommodate more beds and emergency rooms, and a 600-car (244,340 sq. ft.) parking garage.

The five-story parking garage features 40 panels of 3/8” 14-gauge Fabricoil in 316 stainless steel, which exhibits the highest level of corrosion resistance amongst all types of stainless steel. The panels run parallel vertically from the second story to the fifth, with smaller individual sections of coiled wire fabric spanning the perimeter of the ground level.

“We originally had a competitor product in mind for the Children’s Hospital project but then were introduced to Fabricoil by the subcontractor,” says Moses Waindi, senior project architect at EYP. “Cascade Architectural presented a more cost-effective solution to wrapping the garage in metal mesh and we also just preferred the inherent coiled design of Fabricoil over other products.”
