AUDI AG’s Sustainable Concept Dealership Facade
We’re delighted to share AUDI AG’s new sustainable dealership concept store in Germany featuring an approximately 500 m² facade of Made of Air’s novel biochar composite. The material is made from >85% atmospheric carbon content and acts as an engineered carbon sink.
By replacing a typical aluminium facade system, Made of Air’s facade prevents the re-emission of ca. 12t of CO2 from waste biomass and avoids emissions. The building has been awarded Gold Status by the DGNB German Sustainable Building Council.
LED provided structural facade engineering services including fastener testing and Review for the design team, Made of Air, Berlin.
Mennica Cable Wall is Largest in Poland
The new Mennica Legacy Tower three-story lobby façade in Warsaw is Poland’s largest glass cable net wall, opened in 2019. Class A office space inside the highrise tower can be entered via the one-way cable wall system, which has partial curved areas and utilizes a transparent glazing that “blurs the boundary between interior and exterior space” (Goestsch Architects, Chicago). LED provided full proof engineering structural & façade detailing review, including 1:1 IGU glass warp tests and 1:1 cable deflection & tension tests to assure high safety of the locally edge-clamped glazing and cable end fittings.
