New York Sanitation Building Wows with Perforated Solar Fins Enriched with Lumiflon FEVE Resin

Dattner Architects and WXY Architecture + Urban Design teamed up to design New York City’s Manhattan Districts 1/2/5 Garage and Spring Street Salt Shed. The 2,600 custom perforated aluminum solar fins, “float” off the building masonry base and reduce the building’s solar heat. The louvers were protected with IFS Coatings’ IFS 500 FP, a Lumiflon-enriched product.

Construction begins on Pickard Chilton-designed Avocet Tower, featuring a high-performance glass façade

Avocet Tower’s unusual side-core design allows for efficient floor plates of 22,000-28,000 square feet. The building’s elegant high-performance façade allows for comfort and great views while state-of-the art View Dynamic Glass controls natural light within the office tower. “Avocet Tower is one of downtown Bethesda’s most anticipated developments, and its unique mix of hotel and office space will surely distinguish it from other new urban developments,” said Jon Pickard FAIA, RIBA, principal at Pickard Chilton.

Protect Your Next Design with Coatings that Stand the Test of Time

Authored by Channing Beaudry, Global Technical Director, Sherwin-Williams Coil Coatings. “When it comes to building designs that incorporate metal building products as part of the building envelope, whether it’s the entire building or an aesthetic design element, understanding the coatings used on the metal substrate is incredibly important. There are key considerations that specifying architects should be aware of when considering metal and know where to turn to make informed decisions that will ensure their final vision of the building is achieved and stands the test of time.”

PPG Duranar coatings give encore performance at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan

Modeled after London’s iconic Crystal Palace, the original Javits Center opened in 1986 and immediately gained status as the largest space frame structure in the world. In addition to incorporating a luminous glass and metal framework with brilliant views of the Hudson River and the city skyline, the groundbreaking project was characterized by the extensive use of black PPG Duranar coatings. ENCLOS, Keymark and PPG were selected to supply, design and install the building’s curtain wall components.

“Waypoint” at Waypoint Park

Waypoint’s new location draws people into the site to explore and approach the artifact connecting it to both to the city and the water’s edge. “When we thought of a durable, low maintenance, vandal and weather resistant coating, we realized what could be more appropriate than a coating used for highways and roads?” Mutuus Studio studied high index reflective glass bead traffic coatings (0.008 inches in diameter) and were continually surprised by experiments with this humble material and mesmerized by the way the light bounced and interacted with the environment around it.

OLE Health’s newest location clad with Linetec-finished aluminum wall panels

Designed by INDE architecture of San Francisco, the 29,000-square-foot, three-story building’s exterior colors showcase a contemporary, agriculturally inspired palette including terra cotta, light brown and slate gray tones. More accurately, the slate color is called, “Charcoal Smudge.” It was applied by Linetec using Sherwin-Williams Fluropon® 70%, two-coat, PVDF resin-based coatings.

Sto Corp. introduces StoColor® Dryonic® as part of the Sto iQ Technology™ coatings program

Sto Corp. yesterday announced the introduction of its new StoColor® Dryonic® exterior coating to the North American market, providing long-term moisture protection for virtually any substrate. StoColor Dryonic, like Sto’s other iQ Technology coatings, is modeled on principles found in nature. The shell of the African fog-basking beetle, covered in countless microscopic bumps, was the inspiration for the operating principle of this biomimetic coating. StoColor Dryonic features a unique micro-textured surface like that of the beetle’s shell. Rain and condensation cannot collect on this surface, preventing absorption of moisture by the facade.

Guide to Green Building – Product of the Week

Solarban 90 Solar Control Low-E Glass Solarban 90 glass combines industry-leading solar control performance with a true neutral-reflective clear-glass aesthetic. United with clear glass in a standard 1-inch IGU, Solarban 90 glass has a solar heat gain coefficient of 0.23, visible light transmittance of 51 percent and an LSG ratio of 2.22. Solarban 90 glass facilitates the use of smaller HVAC systems to reduce initial capital expenditures and long-term cooling costs. It also enables architects to design buildings with larger expanses of glass to promote daylighting, diminish the need for artificial lighting and connect building occupants to the outdoors. Mountain views, energy efficiency highlight new Ent Center at UC Colorado Springs. Photography by Tom Kessler
