This two-phase project includes 20 stories of prime office space and retail at the ground level with a generous plaza. The building seeks to have a low environmental impact, and the overall form and exterior wall design were driven by studies that optimized solar angles and thermal performance. The building envelope required creative technical solutions to achieve the architect’s performance and aesthetic goals within the Brazilian market and budget. Our services included full consulting from early schematic through Construction Administration, an Exterior Wall Bid Package with material quantities and weights, and a BIM enclosure model.
