SURFACE DESIGN worked to develop 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. The exterior wall features articulated sloped glass, Muntz metal panels, and a point‐supported cable net glass system at the lobby. In addition, SURFACE DESIGN provided detailed analysis of the facade’s thermal performance.
