The complexities of designing the high performance facade for the State Compensation Insurance Fund ranged from coordination of disciplines (architectural, structural, mechanical, curtainwall, daylighting, electrical lighting and space planning) to cost and value considerations in value engineering and specifications. While the design and evaluation of a curtainwall system in relation to single performance critera (daylight, energy use, cost, lateral loads, etc.) is not necessarily difficult, resolving all performance criteria within the design process and timeframe posed significant challenges. To help resolve this complexity Loisos + Ubbelohde performed detailed comfort prediction calculations.
