Architectural Metals

Beauty And Protection, Inside And Out

McKinstry has earned a reputation as the leading Northwest fabricator and installer of custom architectural metal for roofing, wall cladding systems, integrated envelope systems, and ornamental metal applications. Architects know they can count on us to bring their design visions to life while also giving their buildings the protection they need from weather and other environmental variables. And because we don’t represent any specific product lines, our recommendations are based not on pre-conceived notions, but on the collaborative efforts and expertise of our skilled craftspeople. The result – best in class recommendations for every client.

McKinstry has lent its architectural expertise to a wide range of impressive projects. We installed the exterior cladding for the Eye Center of a renowned university as well as the lead coated copper roof and aluminum soffit package of a major historical museum. We fabricated and installed the metal panel systems for a high-tech electronics firm, a major newspaper, and a leading outdoor retailer. And we installed the entire envelope system for both a major west coast port and a regional medical center.


McKinstry brings insight and innovation to each fabrication project through its integrated approach to design and installation. Our architectural metals team embraces the full service ethic of the McKinstry organization, offering design, build, and value analysis consulting, in addition to proven, trusted, first-hand experience in the architectural metals field. McKinstry’s architectural metals professionals are fully supported by McKinstry’s 100,000 square foot fabrication facility and skilled craftspeople, allowing them to deliver high quality projects on budget, on time, and on demand.
