To enhance the performance and value of the state of the art curtain wall system while protecting the client’s investment in that system
To design a shading system that operates on sloped, trapezoid shaped glass and that integrates with the Building Management and LED Lighting System
To provide a superior level of shading performance on the perimeter glass to increase comfort and view to the outside while helping to reduce energy and operating costs
As a member of their “pre-construction team”, Kay + Sons played an integral role in the final curtain wall design, and aside from providing turnkey electrical wiring for the project, solved many technical challenges presented by the building design while playing a coordinating role between the building management, audio visual and general contractors.
This project represented the largest shading project in the country and was project managed and successfully installed on time and ahead of schedule. The shading system provides a high performing solution to all light management issues, while significantly enhancing the aesthetic design and performance objectives of the curtain wall.
Kay + Sons contributed to the developer achieving LEED Platinum level for the project.
