Short Description / Structural consulting for the glazing facade
Year / 2018
Location / Staten Island - NYC
Architect / CetraRuddy Architecture

Located on the Teleport Campus in Staten Island (NYC), Corporate Commons Three is a 8-story new office building. The design has a unique profile with two angled glass facades and two vertical ones. Project has been developed by CetraRuddy Architecture, firm based in New York City.

Mew was commissioned by ISA spa for technical assistance in static analysis of the whole external envelope of the building. The envelope itself is a unitized façade, realized by extruded aluminum elements and DGU glasses. Specific analysis through FE models have been carried out on the external aluminum fins, heavily subjected to wind actions.  The angled glass facades required an additional attention to details for what concerns the choice of the DGU glasses’ panes.
