Alcoa And Alcoa Foundation Contribute Funding And State-of-the Art Building Materials For New United States Diplomacy Center In Washington, D.C.

At an official groundbreaking in Washington, D.C. today, Alcoa (NYSE:AA) and Alcoa Foundation announced a combined financial and in-kind donation of $600,000 to help The State Department build a new visitor center and diplomacy museum in Washington, dedicated to promoting an understanding of U.S. diplomacy and honoring the service of U.S. diplomats throughout history. The U.S. Diplomacy Center, to be built at the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C., is scheduled to open to the public in Fall 2014 with interactive exhibits, artifacts, hands-on education programs, diplomatic simulations and speakers from the Foreign Service community.

“Alcoa has seen firsthand how great diplomacy and trust building can directly benefit our ability to grow our business by offering a significant network that we can build on to pave a path to economic, social and cultural progress. The U.S. Diplomacy Center presents a huge opportunity to help educate people around the world about the importance of engagement and relationship building in commerce,” said Alcoa Chairman and CEO Klaus Kleinfeld. “Alcoa also will take pride in contributing some of the most innovative building and construction products on the market today to enhance the aesthetics, safety, security and environmental performance of this exciting and important destination.”

Alcoa Building & Construction Systems is donating Kawneer Clearwall® curtain wall and Reynobond® panels valued at $500,000. The curtain wall, which boasts high North American performance standards for seismic and severe weather resistance, will hold the glass in place on the exterior of the Center, and Reynobond panels, which also meet the Government’s strict quality requirements, will be installed on the interior.

Made with a highly corrosion-resistant, strong yet flexible and lightweight material, Reynobond panels also contain a high percentage of recycled content. Kawneer’s innovative curtain wall system with a breakthrough glass retaining mechanism will ultimately help the Center be more energy efficient and deliver a sleek all-glass appearance to the building.
