BD+C University Course

For glass openings, how big is too big?

Advances in glazing materials and glass building systems offer a seemingly unlimited horizon for not only glass performance, but also for the size and extent of these light, transparent forms. Both for enclosures and for indoor environments, novel products and assemblies allow for more glass and less opaque structure—often in places that previously limited their use.

Performance considerations for historic window replacement and repair

From the stained glass windows that welcome variegated light into cathedrals to the steel-framed geometric designs of Art Deco and the bold leaded glass of the Prairie style, windows have served to define the character of buildings and spaces since the advent of glazed fenestration. Not only do windows establish the aesthetics and ambiance of a structure, they form an integral part of the building enclosure. More than ornament, windows serve a vital role in protecting the building from the elements and in modulating the transfer of heat, moisture, and light from exterior to interior.

Schweiss Doors bifold door opens to performance center at high-tech Utah student complex 

One of the first things you may ask yourself when you hear about the Spy Hop Productions building at Salt Lake City, is “What is Spy Hop?” Sounds like something out of a James Bond 007 movie! Actually, the meaning of Spy Hop is a vertical half-rise out of the water performed by a whale in order to look ahead, tune in or view the surroundings. It could also be a springing bounce in tall grasses performed by land mammals, such as foxes and wolves, to view the surroundings. In the case of the new Spy Hop 25,000-square-foot digital media arts group building, the “look ahead, tune in” description seems to fit the best as it is geared as a student learning center. Unfortunately, with the ongoing Covid-19 situation, students had been taught online for an indefinite time.
