Great Glazing: C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital
The basics: The 1.1 million-square-foot University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital in Ann Arbor marks the largest construction project in the state in the last year, according to a Guardian Industries release. The facility incorporates 50,000 square feet of energy efficient, advanced architectural glass to maximize daylighting and views, earning it silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program.
The glass: The project features 50,000 square feet of SunGuard Neutral 40 on clear and SunGuard SuperNeutral 68 on clear. HKS specified low-emissivity and spectrally selective glasses that offer a range of visible light transmission, between 40 and 70 percent, while offering lower reflectivity.
