In January 2014, Certified Enameling, Inc. announced that we would be involved in the construction of the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC). This station, located nearby Angel Stadium and Disneyland in Anaheim, is one part of the high-speed bullet train connecting cities across California. Our involvement in the project consisted of applying architectural metal coatings to 85,000 square feet of panels and other features at the station. The project was recently the subject of a feature story in the Los Angeles Times, "ARTIC bullet-train station a curious, conspicuous bit of symbolism." (Follow the link for a slideshow featuring images of the building.)
Transportation Hub Sports Custom Cenamelize
The ARTIC station necessitated the use of Steel City Silver Cenamelize coating to match the colors of the building and protect the building from corrosion and wear. In December of 2014, the building finally opened to the public, revealing a sleek and glass-wrapped transportation hub.
The building itself will act as a symbol for California's burgeoning train travel industry. The California High-Speed Rail, officially breaking ground on January 6, 2015, will eventually find its first home at ARTIC. Produced by architecture firm HOC, the station possesses a commanding presence. With vaulted ceilings and a circular pattern, the outside is covered in metal panes, glass, and ETFE. The building stands as a testament to what rail travel can do for California commuters.
We are proud to use our architectural metal coating procedure on such a prominent building in Anaheim that only promises to grow with the expansion of the High-Speed Rail and the development of ARTIC as a transportation and cultural center. For over 60 years, we have prided ourselves on our excellent customer service and high-quality of work. Our application of Cenamelize to ARTIC is both exciting as a recognition of the skilled services we provide and historical, as it will be standing as a mark on that building for years to come.
