About

This Work

Novum engineered and built this clean series of (3) majestic 91’ tall glass facades, u-shaped in plan, as part of a design-assist/design-build contract for a renovation to the George R Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas. The job had a fast-paced schedule, as this high profile project had to be completed in time for Houston to host Super Bowl LI. The façade consists of suspended horizontal tubes and point supported glass, which allowed expanses of glass nearly 8’ tall with no vertical mullions and uses curved glass panels at the corners. A remarkable achievement utilising Novum Architecturally Exposed Steel, Tension Rod and Point Support Glass Systems.
