The Dorothy Mangurian Comprehensive Women’s Center

Novum was contracted to engineer, furnish and install a porte cochere at the entrance of the new Dorothy Mangurian Comprehensive Women’s Center. The canopy is supported at three locations by steel built-up box beam columns. Elegantly tapered outriggers attach to each column and cantilever 28 ft. over the drop-off area. Translucent glass floats above the structure and gently slopes toward the column center lines to an aluminium gutter painted to match the steel.
