Project Description

Architect: Schreiber, Starling & Lane

General Contractor: Construction Enterprises & Contractors

Completion: Summer 2012



We recently completed our installation at the Georgetown campus of South Seattle Community College which was an addition to the existing Colin Building. This project mixed multiple tinted glasses supplied by Northwestern Industries to create a unique random pattern within the curtain wall system. The differentiating tints all had a Solarban60 Low-E coating on the exterior with either clear, Atlantica, or Azuria glazing on the interior to provide contrasting tones. Careful material procurement and oversight ensured that the architect’s vision was realized and each glazing panel was properly located. The final result is a focal point that stands out as a unique feature on the main facade while still being able to seamlessly integrate itself into the existing structure.
