J.E. Berkowitz, LP, (JEB) announced the completion of Tata Hall at Harvard Business School in Cambridge, Mass.

The campus’ new executive education residential and classroom building features 30,000 square feet of glass fabricated by JEB at its Pedricktown, N.J., headquarters.   Boston-based William Rawn Associates designed the 163,000-square-foot, seven-story building to be warm, inviting, open and transparent.According to architect Mark Scott, the most striking aspect of the building is the abundant and creative use of glass. “As a whole, the building’s glazing is extremely effective at controlling daylighting and glare, while improving thermal comfort and energy efficiency,” he said. “The upper residential floors utilized triple-pane IGUs to provide optimum performance and acoustical separation from the outside environment.The classrooms and core of the building are clad in wood. For these zones, we took pictures of the wood and produced double-pane IGUs with digitally printed glass, creating a custom wood panel look and a seamless transition from paneling to glass.”

For the residential floors, JEB fabricated triple-pane IGUs featuring two lites of high-performance low-e SOLARBAN® 70XL glass by PPG Industries, and a laminated inboard lite. For the classrooms, JEB fabricated double-pane IGUs featuring Solarban 70XL glass by PPG and double- and triple-laminated lites of digitally printed glass by GGI (Secaucus, N.J.) on STARPHIRE® ultra-clear glass by PPG.

Completed in December 2013, Tata Hall is expected to earn LEED® platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The arch-shaped, glass-and-stone building features 179 bedroom suites, two 99-seat classrooms, and study lounges, which help serve nearly 10,000 executives from around the world each year.
