Architectural Skin

Project Description

A contractor commissioned to erect a government building hired Romco to fabricate a 2-storey 10,000 square feet enclosure shaped like a giant egg. A series of vertically oriented ‘whale bones’ were formed as the structural members then interconnected with curtain wall elements. A patented polymer wall was installed in the framework. The process of shaping the main struts was so precise that angular tolerances were limited to ½ degree. Fixturing was critical to minimize distortion during CWB-compliant welding. Painted and shipped in modules, the entire project was delivered in 12 weeks.
