The World Trade Center in downtown Norfolk, Virginia is a nine-story office building overlooking the Elizabeth River. Constructed in the 1980s, the building is clad with insulated metal spandrel panels set in an aluminum-framed ribbon window curtain wall system. The property manager and occupants reported chronic leakage at the exterior walls and their intersection with the curved atrium roof. SGH investigated the causes of leakage and designed repairs to address the enclosure performance issues.
