The building features innovative architecture, a high-performance glass-and-metal skin, and cutting-edge technology.

J.E. Berkowitz (JEB) announced that 804 Carnegie Center West, one of its recent projects and a LEED® Platinum-certified building in Princeton, New Jersey, received a 2018 Green Design Award from USGlass, Metal & Glazing magazine.

“It was a great honor for J.E. Berkowitz to be part of the 804 Carnegie Center West project,” said Gary McQueen, senior director of sales and marketing for JEB. “Collaboration is an integral part of our business and we take great pride in celebrating this Green Design Award with the entire team of companies who were involved.”

Designed by Jacobs Engineering Group, the three-story, 130,000-square-foot building features innovative architecture, a high-performance glass-and-metal skin, and cutting-edge technology.

“With a large expanse of glazing facing almost due south, high-performance glass was required to insulate and limit solar heat gain, while not being overly tinted or reflective,” said John Jackson, senior associate at Jacobs. “In addition to the strict performance specification, the glass had to be sufficiently flat and free of distortion in order to achieve the desired aesthetic.”

For the project, JEB fabricated Winduo™ insulating glass units (IGUs) in multiple configurations, featuring Guardian Glass’ high-performance, low-e SunGuard®AG 50 coated glass for the building, and low-e SunGuard® Neutral 78/65 coated glass for the entrances.

The IGUs also incorporated the JEB 3Seal® warm-edge spacer system, minimizing the units’ primary seal migration to provide straight sightlines, as well as maximizing their structural stability and thermal efficiency. Josloff Industries served as the project’s glazing contractor, installing approximately 37,000 square feet of glass on the building’s facade.

JEB also provided nearly 9,000 square feet of Invisiwall® glass systems for the building’s interior, including precision-fabricated laminated clear glass partitions and doors.

Mike Nicklas, director of engineered glass systems for JEB, said, “The edge alignment of the interior laminated glass was critical since the monolithic glass partitions were connected with polycarbonate I-bar strips to provide a nearly seamless joint, enhancing the overall look.”

The highly efficient building also features 10,000 square feet of solar panels, rainwater and daylight harvesting systems, a green roof, two wind turbines, and more than 30 electric vehicle charging stations.

USGlass magazine’s annual Green Design Awards recognize recent construction projects that feature glass as a key element of the building’s energy-efficient design. Nominated projects included a multiple building types ranging from high-rise to low-rise and new construction to renovation. Winning buildings were selected by a panel of judges representing the design/build industry.
