Novum was contracted to engineer, fabricate and install the stunningly transparent façade for the renovation of Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland, Ohio. The glass wraps around three sides of the building, is 875’ feet long in total and approximately 80’ tall. The glass is laminated and insulated with Low Iron Glass that has a Low-e on the #2 surface, and to enhance the transparency of the wall, the corners of the facade were left column free. The glass is supported with the Novum Edge Clamped Glazing System. The presence of this magnificent façade provides a massive amount of excitement to the downtown area and is a statement piece to sports fans and concert goers alike.
