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.

PARTNERING TO CREATE CUTTING EDGE SOLUTIONS

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.

the process

CS Sun Controls now meet LEED®v4
Since 1999, CS has been creating products that lower a building's environmental impact.  Recently, we've had our Sun Controls evaluated by the Cradle to Cradle multi-attribute program.  MBDC’s C2C Certification helps architects achieve two additional points in LEED®v4 for Material Ingredient Reporting and Material Ingredient Optimization.

Cradle to Cradle Certified™
CS Cantilever, Suspended, Vertical and Horizontal Sunshades in an anodized or powder coat finish have been approved to carry the Cradle to Cradle Certification.

 

 

*Cradle to Cradle Certified™ is a certification mark licensed by the Cradle to Cradle Innovation Institute.

Increased occupant comfort
CS Sun Controls enhance occupant comfort, increase worker productivity and improve educational performance.

Sun Controls without headaches.
When you work with CS early, we simplify the process fro design through installation, including:  developing architectural designs with structural integrity, code review, project management and signed and sealed drawings and engineering calculations.
