North Richland Hills
Municipal Complex

On May 13, North Richland Hills unveiled its new three-story, $60 million, 180,000 square foot City Hall. Built on a nine-acre site at the location of the old North Hills Mall, the municipal building brings city services under one roof; from the water department and city council to public safety and municipal courts. While watching the video you may note some adjacent, undeveloped land. The new center is expected to attract shops, restaurants, a hotel, entertainment venues and up to three hundred apartment units.

Brinkley Sargent was the architect of record, while Balfour Beatty Construction served as construction manager at risk. Balfour contracted with NOW Specialties to provide Bright Silver Metallic aluminum composite material (ACM) on the canopies, upper walls and accent columns, as well as Bright Silver Metallic Morin A-12 at the parapets. We installed Garden Slate ACM and two Morin profiles (MX1.0 and MX2.0) at the mechanical screenwalls. We believe the metal panels make a stunning addition to the façade of natural stone, glass and exterior lighting. We’re also pretty fond of the building geometry, if the video doesn’t make that clear.

I’m not sure if Stephen made two trips between the sunrise and sunset flights, or if he just camped out overnight and ate lasagna from a bag. But either way, let’s give him a round of applause for another great video shoot and beautiful video!
