PROJECT UPDATE (06.14.2018):
This episodes focus is exclusively on the EXTERIOR SUN SCREENS and unit entry LOGGIA. These elements are primary to the projects exterior design. The aluminum tube/pipe armature was built in a local shop full size with some dimensions over 70'. Panels were then cut into 3 or 4 pieces, shipped to the jobsite and then re-assembled prior to erection. Once in place, the armatures are skinned with 1/8" solid and perforated aluminum panels depending on their facade location. All material, transport and labor was locally sourced. Aluminum is made from 90% recycled content and is 100% recyclable, thus is a very green/cost effective/low maintenance material.
Concurrently, multiple trades continue the north to south rotation finishing their portion on the project and will be featured in a future project update shortly.
NEXT, exterior sun screens/unit entry loggia continue, site work + continuation of finishing the interiors.
…the end is near
