In June, SageGlass completed its largest electrochromic glass installation to date: 25,000 sf of dynamic glass at Bowie (Md.) State University’s new 149,000-sf Center for Natural Sciences, Mathematics and Nursing.

The glass was installed on portions of the curtain wall façade and throughout The Beacon, a three-story multipurpose space. It tints on demand, allowing professors to customize solar control. It is also programmed to tint automatically based on light standards.

By blocking sunlight on hot days, the electrochromic glass will help reduce energy demand in the building, which is aiming to achieve LEED Gold certification.
