Case Study Project Overview

This project posed some unique challenges for our team. Particularly, the design of the barrel vault that called for the structure to shift from a vertical wall to a semicircle. Our eager team was more than prepared to take this on.

Our Process

Creating the structural change in the glass block wall required the use of an internal grid that could be hidden within the glass brick. The design and fabrication of these custom panels took time and careful consideration.

This high traffic area demanded the use of a very high compression strength mortar as well as additional vertical supports on the outside of the wall.
