Northern Architectural Provides Sloan Kettering Curtain Wall

Northern Architectural Systems has been tapped to provide the feature curtain wall at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s new state-of-the-art laboratory medicine facility at 327 East 64th St. in New York City.

Northern’s design and engineering teams worked closely with erector A Cohen & Sons and Hunter Roberts Construction Group to realize the centerpiece structure designed by Perkins + Will Architects.

The concept required a series of large glass panels set close to one another with no exterior support or visible framing.

In order to save time, Northern has customized a Schuco standard curtain wall system to meet the design concept. Viracon will provide energy efficient insulating glass units, each one having a unique two-layer pattern printed inside the insulating airspace.

The 5 foot wide and 11 foot high insulating glass units will be “glued” to the interior aluminum wall structure with special GE Momentive structural silicone at Northern’s wall systems plant in Carlstadt, NJ and trucked directly to the site as completely glazed sections to be hoisted and hung on the front of the building.

The building is expected to receive LEED Gold Certification.
