For each pixel, Linetec finished an 8-by-8-inch extruded aluminum flapper panel in the corresponding color. To achieve the pixelated mural effect, 35 unique colors were chosen to match West’s original artwork.
Sesquicentennial Hall, which is connected to the existing Busby Hall of Engineering, is a 200,000-square-foot new structure, created to support interdisciplinary engineering and computer science. A key to the success of the project was the exterior aesthetics.
During the design phase, the project team needed an exterior cladding solution that could accommodate a fast-paced construction schedule, requiring material with a simple, fast installation. In addition, the team sought material that would seamlessly integrate with the glass curtainwall design, the facade’s defining feature.
For this project, Sunrise Erectors field verified the completed elevations for the panel releases and also released panels for elevations that needed to be constructed. Coordination with the construction manager was required and very important to hold the dimensions on new elevations that were constructed after the panel release.
The 108kW system is installed on the state-of-the-art George B. Duke Engineering and Information Technologies Building on the Pitt-Bradford campus in Bradford, Pennsylvania. Now operational, it is expected to produce 116,500 kWh of electricity each year, offsetting approximately 40% of the building’s total electricity use.
In creating a building befitting of the cutting-edge, high-tech research and cyber security programs taking place at the University of Texas at San Antonio National Security Collaboration Center, a combination of red brick, limestone masonry, metal and high-performance glass were selected for the modern façade.
Designed by STUDIOS Architecture, $100 million renovation of the landmarked mixed-use tower introduces new rooftop pavilion, retail offerings, large floor plates and direct access to the flourishing Union Square neighborhood.
