Air Force One Pavilion – Ronald Reagan Presidential Library

This dramatic 60' (18m) tall and 187' (57m) long facade features point supported glass structurally supported by 51' (16m) tall bow trusses. Each impressive 10' (3m) wide by 5.5' (1.7m) tall glass panel is secured by four rotational glazing bolts which fasten to glazing arms. Novum designed custom pivoting glazing arms to handle seismic loads. The glazing arms are architecturally welded to the steel trusses. Novum provided single source engineering, supply and installation for both glazing and steelwork. The result is a wonderfully transparent facade to showcase Air Force One.
