Project Preparation
& Framing

The better the project preparation, the more seamless the execution. We began this project with safety training, and met onsite with the General Contractor to give updates and troubleshoot. From there, we prepped for frames and glass.

  • Safety training given by the General Contractor
  • Regular onsite progress meetings with General Contractor
  • Accurately measured and prepared initial layout of openings to start the installation
  • Erecting framing and anchors
  • Installing vertical and horizontal rails to keep framing square/plumb
  • Tie in wind load and dead load anchors to ensure structural integrity
  • Glass was custom-made (Low E vision panes & spandrel glass) to cover the wind load anchor and fire stop

Glass Installation

Because of our rigorous preparation, we were able to install the glass into the frames on time and on budget for beautiful curtain walls that will stand the test of time. 

  • Setting the glass with screw on temps
  • Installing permanent pressure plates and beauty caps
  • Exterior glass placement using boom lifts
  • Interior glass placement using scissor lifts
