Fargo rose to global fame in 1996 with the film directed by the Coen brothers. The never-ending snowy landscapes became the icon of the city, where the snow season lasts almost half the year.

In such extreme weather, it is extremely important to choose the right construction materials as there are not many alternatives which can withstand freezing without damaging its appearance and performance.

Natural slate is capable of enduring low temperatures, has a very low water absorption and is frost resistant. With these credentials, CUPACLAD seemed the ideal product to finish the Enclave main headquarters.

The product is great for the North Dakota wind speeds and truly adapts to whatever environment it’s installed in”, assures Mike Herbst, Managing Partner of Environmental Building Products.

The design of this modern office building included huge windows to allow the natural light in and a sleek exterior finish mixing textures and materials. The playful CUPACLAD 101 Random system complements the ochre tones and the natural surroundings.

Natural slate is an incredibly long-lasting material, therefore CUPACLAD needs almost zero maintenance even in the most adverse weather conditions.

It was the first time with CUPACLAD for Knoke Seamless, the installation company. As such, they had some concerns with the ease of installation that were quickly dissipated once they started the job.

I could take someone who had never done it before and have them running their own wall within a few short hours”, said Keith Knoke, owner and operator of Knoke Seamless.
