707 Fifth office tower offers an attractive, energy-efficient, comfortable workplace in downtown Calgary

The new 707 Fifth “AAA” office tower designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM), features a distinctive, curved glass appearance with high energy-efficiency and a comfortable interior. In spite of the cold climate, the 27-story, 564,000-square-foot (52,400m²) building met its energy targets, due in part, to the use of Technoform’s TGI® Spacer M in the triple-glazed, curtain wall system.

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.
