Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s campus, located in Daytona Beach, Florida, now features a new 145,000-square-foot residence hall, housing 650 students. To facilitate the project’s sustainability and performance goals, as well as the modern aesthetic, Tubelite Inc., tubeliteinc.com, provided 400CW and 400SS Series curtain wall systems, 4500 Series storefront systems, medium stile doors, and an airfoil fin that extends 10 inches from the building.The university temporarily relocated 420 students while the old dormitory, McKay Hall, was demolished and rebuilt, all on a compressed schedule of 11 months. Tubelite worked closely with contract glazier Tab Glass & Window Corp., tab-glass.com, focusing on collaboration and capacity planning to complete the job on time. Walt Lutzke, marketing promotions coordinator, Tubelite, also highlights the importance of Tubelite’s capacity planning. “Tubelite’s dependable delivery of the curtain wall materials to meet promised schedule dates allowed on-time completion of the glazing by Tab Glass so students could move in as planned.” The steel tie-rod construction of the doors allowed the products to be modified, disassembled or resized in the field, company officials say. The curtain wall also aided fast installation, say officials, due to the systems’ exterior screw-applied pressure bars, which secure the glass in place, and snaps fit with a cover plate to conceal fasteners.  Overall, Tab Glass & Window installed 15,000 square feet of curtain wall, 10,000 square feet of windows and 14 door leaves.PQH Group, pqh.com, was the architect, and Perry-McCall Construction, perry-mccall.com, was the general contractor. Viracon, viracon.com, fabricated 1-inch VUE-30 low-emissivity glass, as well as VE-2M and VRE1-59 for the project. All systems were finished with Linetec’s, linetec.com, clear anodize, which provides weather protection from corrosion, humidity and warping that Florida’s coastal conditions threaten.
