This Work

Embry-Riddle, an aeronautical university in Florida, was looking for a double-curved façade reminiscent of a pilot’s visor. A very shallow structure was desired, even though the façade was over 40’ tall and located in a region with extremely high wind loads. Novum was able to accomplish these goals using a systems approach. Novum helped create a form that ensured all the glass modules on the double-curved façade were planar. Novum then worked with the engineer of record to coordinate boundary conditions that allowed the façade to thrust on the building frame at the jambs. This enabled Novum to keep the profile size of the façade members to 5” deep. Novum’s proprietary software automated the creation of fabrication drawings for the glass and steel, which made it possible to both create a unique structure and meet the fast track schedule.
