Perforated perfection, customized for constructability

For this public project, proprietary specifications could not be used and design details would have to be planned with the ability to be constructed by a range of manufacturers. Further, the massive facility, which would eventually house three district garages and more than 150 sanitation vehicles, as well as vehicle-wash, personnel, fueling and repair facilities, would also have to employ sustainable design strategies while remaining committed to holistic design and civic architecture.


Project: University of Hawaii at Manoa Information Technology Center
Architect: Ferraro Choi
Product: Custom Vertical Perforated Sunshades

CS engineers worked with Ferraro Choi to develop careful detailing and ensure proper attachments for the concrete façade’s unique geometry, including a seamless concealed fastener system for the Airfoil blades, which features varied spacing between blades on each facade orientation based on computer modeling to create a cost-effective, high-performance daylight management system.
