Installation of the aluminum canopies are to occur in 2019

ASHEVILLE, NC, July 17, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Mitchell Metals is excited to manufacture and install the aluminum walkways for the Lake Lure Classical Academy K-12 Project in Lake Lure, NC.

Mitchell Metals will be working directly with the general contractor Carolina Specialties Carolina Specialties Construction, LLC to install the aluminum canopies that were designed by Fisher Architects, PA out of Asheville, NC.

The aluminum canopy system is going to cover approximately 3,300 square feet. We are excited to collaborate with local Asheville, North Carolina contractors to create and implement this design. Installation of the aluminum canopies are to occur in 2019.

According to Mike Merrell from Carolina Specialties, Lake Lure Classical Academy was constructed a couple of years ago; however, due to budget constraints, the walkway covers were eliminated from the project scope.

Recently, proposed improvements for Lake Lure Academy included walkway covers extending from parking areas to the school’s various entrance structures. Because the existing concrete sidewalks (which included handicap ramps with handrails) were relatively new, Mitchell Metals provided innovative options to salvage the sidewalk areas while still providing structural support for the walkway columns.

Without the collaborative efforts of professionals consisting of: Mitchell Metals Chief Engineer Austin Carter and Carolina Specialties, Mike Merrell, I am confident the walkway covers for this architecturally unique school would not have been possible” said Shelley Zimmerman – Estimator with Mitchell Metals.

Lake Lure Classical Academy is located in Lake Lure, North Carolina, near Asheville. Lake Lure Classical Academy: A Challenge Foundation Academy is a public charter school in the Lake Lure area for students in grades K–12
