Challenge
The dynamic shape and angles in the design, combined with the height of the building, posed significant challenges in terms of energy performance and snow/water shed.
Solution
Entuitive designed a curtain wall and overhead glass assembly that provided the required building envelope performance. We also developed sophisticated snow melting and collection systems. These systems use a unique hot water deluge system to mitigate snow collection and subsequent ice formation. To reduce the amount of snow and rainwater coming off the building, the curtain wall includes integral heat-traced gutters that drain through the curtain wall to the interior storm drainage system.
