Eighth Avenue Place

The inclined atrium walls of this modern complex in Calgary features inclined glass fin facades laterally braced by exposed steel trusses. The Novum GG-System was selected. The cladding glass is held by a discreet profile bended to the face of the fin. Fins are triple laminated for strength and to provide redundancy. The horizontal glass points are simple silicon gaskets which are wet sealed.
