Convention centers typically use tall expanses of vertical glass along the building perimeter and strategically placed skylights to create bright daylight zones to contrast the exhibition spaces. It is common for floor slabs to stop well short of the facade, creating multi-story circulation atriums that bring in an abundance of daylight and maximize views. As a result, the facade system tends to require increased secondary support systems. Enclos is skilled in developing secondary support systems that minimize visual obstruction while carrying a unitized curtainwall system. Additionally, signature statement walls help define a focal point, often the main entrance, along an otherwise long, wide building facade. Beyond curtainwall, Enclos offers custom specialty structural solutions to help bring the architectural vision for these features.

A successful project starts with clear communication. Our team works best when we’ve had a chance to listen to the architectural intent and then offer up technical solutions that are time-tested in a tailored configuration.
