Real World Project Examples

Sporting Park

Project Scope: Curtain wall and storefront systems, sliding window walls and windows, engineering design and calculations.

Experience with curtain wall design is rare. University Engineering programs have not caught up with the changing architectural design trends and codes. So cities around the United States are moving from traditional stone design to glass. Architects are designing with glass, supported by aluminum frames. Even so, few classes and no degrees are offered in any United States university that address this growing need. Engineering programs teach structural classes using steel, concrete and wood. Aluminum and also glass are not even considered.

Experience in Window Blast is a rare skill. This project required. So working in finite design analysis required for these facility upgrades.

Winder Army Reserve Center

Project Scope: Blast Engineering Design, Curtain Wall, Storefront, and Sunshade Design

This project required an experienced structural engineer with experience in Window Blast design. Window Blast requirements are new to the US, since the new Anti-Terrorism codes have become required for military and government installations that require blast proof glass.

Experience in Window Blast is a rare skill. This project required. So working in finite design analysis required for these facility upgrades.

Townebank Harbour View Banking Center
