Project Highlights

  • The engineers designed details for the glass façade of the penthouse skyloft to tie back the glazing into the wood framed system to reduce steel and brace frame material.
  • To create the pop-out framing details of the building façade, the engineers coordinated with the construction team and roof truss designers to accomplish the dynamic feature using vertical trusses along the height of the building.
