CHAOYANG PARK PLAZA TOWER: DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF COMPLEX GEOMETRY FAÇADE
We plan to conduct long term field testing and monitoring of spandrel panels utilizing new insulation technologies. Once the panels have been installed, monitoring of the thermal and hygrothermal performance will be conducted over a two year period with full exposure to actual extreme environmental and occupancy use conditions. The modified spandrel panels will utilize thin aerogel-based hybrid insulation technology and be configured in an attempt to alleviate thermal bridging issues associated with current spandrel panel design. At the end of the project, the goal is to have proven the validity of the modified spandrel panel design for use in both new and retrofitted curtain wall systems. The process, progress, and results will be discussed.
