UNC Genetic Medicine Building

The University of North Carolina began construction of its new Genetic Medicine Building back in 2005. The $110 million building was dedicated in May 2008. Once completed it became the new home of UNC’s Eshelman School of Pharmacy and the School of Medicine. The seven-story building contains five floors of laboratories and accommodates 600 employees.

Flannery provided new dies for three different Concealed Fastener Trims (CFT). These trims were installed in the building’s interior. The Concealed Fastener Trims created 1, 2, and 4-inch wide trims that sat off of the interior walls along the building’s work corridors. The contractor installed base plates of the CFT’s and then attached the main trim cap, which hid all fasteners from view.

Can Flannery create a new custom Trim for my Project?

Even though Flannery has an extensive library of products for our customers to choose from, we know that the industry is constantly growing and changing due to trends and innovation. Thus, Flannery is always ready to add more trims to fit your unique project. As seen from this project, Flannery was able to make three new trims just in time for this project to be built. So don’t hesitate to ask Flannery if we can create new architectural trims for your design. And sometimes, if you can’t find it on our site already, we might actually have what you are looking for! Flannery is in tune with the desires of our customers and so we develop new trims all the time! Of course, it is hard to keep up sometimes, but we are always happy to expand and improve our selection for our wonderful customers!

The Concealed Fastener Trim is a two-piece trim that once installed sits proud of the wall while hiding all of the trim’s fasteners. Part 2 of the trim is attached to the wall’s substrate first and then Part 1 is “snapped” over Part 2 thus concealing all of the fasteners of the trim.
