The Ohio State University, and it's construction management team Turner Construction-Bovis Lend Lease, recently selected National Enclosure Co. to design and install the sophisticated curtainwall facade for the new Cancer and Critical Care facility. As part of the university's high-profile Project One initiative, the new facility adds nearly 800,000 sf and is located on the main campus in Columbus, Ohio. Completion of the approximately $15 million contract is expected to be December 2012.
The Ohio State University's Cancer and Critical Care facility is designed by internationally recognized Hellmuth, Obata + Kassabaum (HOK).
The design incorporates a highly energy efficient, unitized curtainwall facade for the tower, which is a key component in the design's projected achievement of LEED Gold status.
NEC has been selected as the Design Assist Contractor which integrates the firm with other team members to develop the final design implementation. NEC's contribution of a scalable design and installation technology will provide a standardized, factory-assembled unitized facade which will be adaptable and customized for the Cancer and Critical Care facility.
This recently awarded contract demonstrates the industry demand for high-performance and technologically-innovative solutions for advance facades on architectural projects. Whether glass, terracotta, aluminum, stainless steel, granite or stone, NEC has developed a cost-effective solution which is changing the way advance architecture is being achieved. BD+C
