Jim Beam® American Stillhouse Wrapped in Metal Sales™

Metal Roof and Wall Panels Help Achieve LEED® Gold Certification

LOUISVILLE, KY… Metal Sales™ metal roof and wall panels outfit the LEED® Gold certified Jim Beam American Stillhouse and Distillery in Clermont, KY. The Stillhouse showcases Jim Beam’s bourbon-making process by hosting tours in a sustainable and visually appealing facility.

The facility’s design unites Jim Beam’s family tradition, company history and commitment to sustainability with more than 31,000 square feet of Metal Sales products.

“The metal wall and roof panels gave us the look we wanted for the Stillhouse,” said Clark Barnette, AIA at Barnette Bagely Architects who served as architects of the Stillhouse. “There are several traditional rickhouses on the property and the corrugated panels allowed us to match the existing buildings.”

The LEED Gold project project recycled 25% of building materials and diverted more than 80% of the construction materials from landfills. Other sustainable features include occupancy sensors and control panels with built-in timers to regulate lighting throughout the facility to save energy. Low-flow water fixtures reduce water usage by 50% annually in the Stillhouse.

“Metal roof and wall panels are great building materials,” says Barnette. “They offer supreme durability, a unique look and are sustainable thanks to their recyclability.”
