A CASE STUDY OF DESIGN AND COLLABORATION
111 Main presented a unique challenge of façade design. A 35’ tall all glass storefront designed and constructed in a market that had no prior experience with glass of that scale, and almost three feet of vertical movement between the glass storefront and the tower above. The design and execution of a structural glass façade required input and expertise from a wide range of professionals, including the Architect, Engineer, Specialty Glass Engineer and Builder. By assembling the core team of specialists, the Owner achieved their goal of developing an exceptional and iconic building in the heart of Salt Lake City, Utah.
