Enclos field crews’ monumental efforts above Downtown San Diego peaked earlier this summer with the dramatic installation of Pacific Gate’s crowning curtainwall unit. The tower was designed by Kohn Pederson Fox Associates to mirror the fluid forms of the shoreline and rises 41 stories to a height of 458´.

A great way to introduce ADAPTABILITY into a building program – either in function or for access to natural ventilation – is by implementing kinetic facade features. KINETIC ENCLOSURES is a series of animations that will explore various forms of motion and mechanisms that drive the movement.read more
The goal of animation is to communicate an idea, to give the viewer just enough to understand what they are looking at, and why. At Enclos, we use 3D animation as a tool to develop the best construction processes for any given project. While the result is computer driven, it all begins with pencil and paper, implementing time-tested storyboarding techniques, and ends by bringing visionary building facades to life.read more

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art features the largest architectural application of fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) in the United States: more than 700 unique FRP panels affixed to a unitized curtainwall system envelop the 10-story expansion. The enclosure is the result of a collaborative union between architect Snøhetta, leading FRP manufacturer Kreysler & Associates of American Canyon, California, and Enclos, one of the largest facade contractors in the United States.
Join us for a virtual tour of the manufacturing processes and installation sequences that brought this visionary building facade to life.read more
