Selected Project Experience
The Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University
Ventana has been hired to supply and install 160,000 SF of curtainwall for this 415,000 SF building. The design includes a thermally and acoustically advanced unitized curtain wall that features thermally broken framing, triple insulated glass, sound deadening material within the system, and integrates custom designed glass fins outboard of the wall to reduce heat gain and glare into the building. The framing system is a custom, belt and suspenders double stack joint, which has offers enhanced acoustical properties to keep exterior sound from the interior of the space, as well offering better air and water resistance. This design also features 8-foot by 12-foot oversized insulated pieces of glass for maximum transparency. This $20 million project also featured “jumbo” glass sizes and structural steel backup members.
Zurich North American Headquarters
Ventana has been hired to supply and install 250,000 SF of custom designed unitized curtain wall for this project, utilizing a design-assist delivery method. The design incorporates an environmentally friendly light strategy that uses aluminum shading. The project value is over $30 million and features acoustically enhanced glass for better interior work environments, continuous custom extruded sunshades that limits heat gain,a ventilated “double wall” lobby façade, and a structurally glazed fin wall lobby entrance system.
