SCHEMATIC DESIGN THROUGH CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATION & MONITORING
System / Type
UNITIZED CURTAIN WALL & CABLE NET LOBBY WALL
The exterior wall features articulated sloped glass, Muntz metal panels, and a point‐supported cable net glass system at the lobby. SURFACE DESIGN provided full facade consulting services, detailed analysis of the facade’s thermal performance, and assisted in the development of a green roof storm water retention system to mitigate runoff from the building. Due to its close proximity to the FDR Drive, acoustic performance was a key issue in selecting glass and designing the facade.
