SGH supported the general contractor as they implemented integrated construction details between unitized vertical glazing systems and adjacent building enclosure systems at complex transitions. Highlights of our work include the following:
Developed three-dimensional models depicting the intersection of storefront systems with opaque wall assemblies to depict the integration of various systems and the sequencing required to implement the details
Consulted on detailing for a pedestrian bridge where its low-sloped glazing roof transitions into a gutter system running along the curtain wall at 200 Massachusetts Avenue, and helped the contractor plan for the numerous trades involved in this complicated junction
Helped clarify the required construction sequencing associated with curtain wall transitions to metal panels and the main roof
Performed diagnostics related to temporary water management at the anchorage of the curtain wall to the main roof during construction
Participated in the curtain wall punch list process to assist the contractor in identifying areas where they could improve the as-built detailing
The general contractor also engaged SGH to provide building enclosure consulting services for the adjacent building at 250 Massachusetts Avenue.
