Loranger Square Pavilion Project
Monroe, MI United States | 2006
Soaring above the city at 1,776 feet, One World Trade Center will be America's tallest building and an indelible New York landmark. Sustainable design is central to One WTC's development. With 12,000 high strength blast proof windows encased in steel and a humid subtropical climate, hot-dip galvanizing was the preferred choice for insuring the sustainability of this monumental building.
Steel chemistry, product design and the unique application of the embeds required special handling beyond the typical course of galvanizing steel.
Although this project has spanned over the course of 6 years to date, the volume of high strength embeds and quick turnaround times made this project a challenge to complete as scheduled. Steel chemistry, product design and the unique application of the embeds required special handling beyond the typical course of galvanizing steel. With an emphasis on creating a much safer "blast zone" in the design of this building, the use of high strength steel was critical. With over 12,000 window panels that are 60" x 160" you can only imagine the number of embeds required to support this structure. All materials were imported into Portland and assembled into utilized frames. The units were then containerized and shipped by rail to New Jersey where they were then trucked to the job site in lower Manhattan.
