Novum was contracted to engineer, fabricate and install a transparent façade and canopy for a new office building in downtown Milwaukee, WI. The use of a suspended horizontal steel solution, in combination with the Novum Architecturally Exposed Steel, Tension Rod + Point Supported Glass Systems, created an elegant entrance for the two 30’ wide by 54’ tall façade. The canopy extends from the façade 6’-9” and is 20’ wide. The canopy uses steel outriggers extending from the door portal structure to support the glass. The glass for the canopy is supported with a Novum Edge Clamped Glazing Support System.
