- general office space

- a Tier II data center and server room on raised flooring
Exquisite Details for the C-Suite
For the exterior skin, 3D modeling was utilized to obtain the proper curvature based on Phillip Johnson’s hand-built model. Utilizing the base 3D model, the metal stud designer in Minnesota then modeled each stud to fit in the custom shaped walls and ceilings. Great attention to detail, flawless organization, and many meetings were required to achieve the precise curvature as dictated by the model.
Fabrication and erection of the steel was the biggest challenge. Due to the complexity of the columns and beams, the team modeled every piece of the steel structure including all welded and bolted connections. When it came time to erect the structure, typical installation methods would not suffice since none of the columns were plum, and none of the beams were truly horizontal. Lasers were used on the slab in order to make sure the curved columns hit a particular point in space.
