Metro Walls to install exterior prefab trusses at Lowell Catholic High School

March 15, 2019 - Construction Design & Engineering

Lowell, MA Metro Walls, Inc. has been selected to construct all of the exterior framing and high-impact drywall for the 11,600 s/f Lowell Catholic High School slated to open this spring. 

Metro Walls chose Atlantic Prefab to build the specialty trusses. 

Atlantic Prefab was hired on to provide CFS Pre-Engineered Roof Trusses for the entrances for this project. These trusses were fabricated with a radiused bottom chord which saved Metro Walls both money and man-hours. To be more specific, an estimated six days of labor and thousands of dollars were saved on this project by going prefab. 

Originally, the contract drawings had shown the actual radius framed in the field, however, these plans were able to be altered. “Our unique approach to radiused members allowed us to take care of this in our warehouse, essentially saving the customer hundreds of man-hours and time on-site”, said Mark Beroney, general manager/senior designer at Atlantic Prefab.
