Calgary Office Offers Energy-Efficient, Comfortable Workplace

The curtainwall relies on Tianjin North Glass’ (tng) state-of-the-art, bent, triple-pane insulated glazing units (IGUs) with two low-E coatings from G-Crystal Glass Group. Technoform’s tgi Spacer m, a bendable, yet durable, warm edge spacer separates the three panes of glass, creating an insulating barrier at the perimeter of the igu to improve thermal performance. This combination of high-performance components allows the igus to meet the project’s high thermal performance requirements and achieve the overall energy-saving, sustainability goals.The thermal performance requirements of 707 Fifth included stringent whole unit u-factors of 0.91 W/m²K (0.16 hr/ft²F),
