CSD provided design services for the specialty insulated glass panel facades for the First Americans Museum Hall of People. The east facade consists of over 12,000 square feet of vertical glazing with alternating glass fritting to portray an aesthetically appealing striped pattern. The 200-foot-long, 100-foot-tall west facade overlays a semi spherical geometry with glass and integral sunshades supported by custom-designed and custom-tested clamps. CSD acted as the structural engineer of record for the specialty facade elements on this project and oversaw the structural design of the facade and development of the testing program for the custom support clamps. This included design of the insulated glass panels, custom support clamps, and steel framing connecting the facade to the structural steel elements of the main structure.
