  • “Getting this building from the drawing board to Duffy Square needed the combined efforts of the architects, engineers, contractors and installers. ... This sort of project, where the precise location of each part installed affects the installation of the parts that follow, was a wonderful challenge. We had to design and provide unique shoring and clamping devices to maintain the...
  • “It’s a hurricane impact project with 1 5/16-inch insulating glass units, and one of the only projects in South Florida where sunshades are integrated into the curtain wall system. It is fairly common in other parts of the country. Impact ratings make it more difficult to integrate sunshades into the curtain wall.” – Rudi Prusa, business development manager, Trainor Glass...
  • “It is our understanding that the 24-karat gold coating is a complex make-up for Viracon. This along with a very aggressive ‘Vegas style’ schedule put an abnormal load on Viracon's shoulders. Garret Henson and his team at Viracon were able to come through for Enclos allowing for an uninterrupted curtain wall assembly and allowing us to keep the curtain wall installation no more...
  • “This project was difficult at the beginning because we changed glass type four times before we ordered to get a look unlike any other current project around. Lathrop, the general contractor, did a wonderful job of running the project so no one was in each other’s way. The project was a success for all by the end and mixes the high-end residential look with commercial tones....
  • "The building contains what is to our knowledge North America's largest application of Josef Gartner's water wall technology that controls condensation on the glass wall and heats the atrium space.

  • “The glass for the project was not only a unique design for us but a challenge as well, due to its proximity to Lake Erie. What strikes you the most is how the design of the building flows along the water and mimics the look of an ocean going vessel. With the building located within 30-foot proximity to Lake Erie, there were restrictions with the weight of the equipment near the sea wall....
  • "The main 40-foot curtain wall oversees Interstate 75 northbound and southbound. About 30 feet up, the word 'Penta' with letters about 10-feet tall is silk screened on the glass. You can see it from about two miles away, and at night they light up the entire curtain wall so you can read 'Penta' from way down on I-75." – Walt Erickson, senior project estimator, Interstate...
  • “The project was one of our bigger blast jobs; we had to meet the Air Force’s blast resistance requirements in the makeup of the curtain wall and glass. It is on an Air Force Base, and the contractor took the security perimeter and moved it inside the base so the project was outside the security perimeter for easier access to the building site.” -- Jeff Creason, owner and vice...
  •  “The glass selected for the project is a high-performance insulating glass unit with a low-E metallic coating that is designed to allow plentiful natural light to enter the building without excessive heat-gain. This allows increased natural daylighting, increased vision glass area, and increased energy efficiency--both by decreasing solar heat gain and by reducing artificial lighting...
