UMass Football Performance Center

Color: Graphite #003
Finish: Smooth Shot Blast
Location: Amherst, Massachusetts
Architect: Perkins+Will

The new 55,000 sq. ft. Football Performance Center facility integrates all the team’s needs, providing a new press box, locker rooms, strength and conditioning areas, coaches’ offices, team meeting rooms, equipment storage, and laundry facilities. With all of these functions under one roof, the new center provides athletes a state-of-the-art home to hone their athletic and academic performances.

As the modern alternative to stone, cement and slate, Petrarch panels give the impact needed to make designs stand out from the crowd. They bring individuality and style to a building while being extremely durable, low maintenance and highly resistant to impact.  Petrarch panels passed the rigid requirements of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 285 Fire Test Standard.

Manufactured by Omnis, Petrarch’s strength and lightweight features in both 5/16” (7mm) and 7/16” (10mm) thicknesses make it the ideal choice for unique façades. Choose from a variety of colors and finishes to customize your project.
