The University of Delaware College of Electrical and Computer Engineering set out to create one of the most dynamic cyber ranges in the country. By using non-traditional materials, like Cascade Architectural’s undulating coiled wire fabric walls and ceiling treatments, the new iSuite boasts an impeccable, award-winning design.

The space features 750 sq. ft. of 5/16”-15-gauge aluminum Fabricoil with a powder-coated satin copper finish. The resulting ceiling treatment produces “true curves,” with the coiled wire fabric wall constructed in a similar fashion. University officials credit the innovative space with an “immediate and noticeable increase in enrollments,” helping the school project a particular image that truly speaks to the students.
