Key Benefits

Description

To speed up the fast-track project, Aufbau worked closely with the mechanical and electrical design teams while the architectural drawings were still incomplete. This cooperation enabled Aufbau to start construction before all designs were complete.

The signature element of this 290,000 square foot office building is a waterfall glass curtainwall on its north side. The focus of the extensive three-dimensional modeling was the complex connection to the building’s west wall which featured an inverted Z-corner and 15 degree cantilever. A $100,000 mock-up was used to verify its operational performance.
