As Optima Center in Chicago, IL nears completion, many of fT advanced materials can be highlighted. This project clearly identifies the success of a single source supplier. One of the unique facets of the projects are the (774) zero sightline windows. These custom 29 SF project-out windows were designed project specific to meet free air requirements and enhance the sleek exterior facade. Critical to the performance was our selection of the multi-locking Giesse Eurogroove hardware. facadeTek also supplied as a design enhancement the integrated structural glass handrail system. The system was designed to meet all structural requirements yet maintain the design of the adjacent unitized curtainwall. Critical details were prepared and engineered by fT to provide not only a waterproof solution but a thermally enhanced structural attachment. Lastly, fT fabricated over 3,400 aluminum shadow box panels. These 18,000 SF of panels were finished with a 70% PVDF finish and prefabricated with all holes, insulation and attachment hardware for easy installation into the unitized curtainwall units.

These are just a few of the many advanced materials that facadeTek can manufacture to support any ongoing developments. This product mix allows us to provide unique design solutions as a single source vendor for most all of your facade elements. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
