Glass Con Global 2018 – Hurricane and Bomb Blast
At this year's GlassCon, Will Laufs will be presenting Extreme Glazing Load Case Studies: Hurricane and Bomb Blast
. The abstract will focus on large transparent building facades with minimal support structures that are subject to numerous project-specific safety requirements that challenge the engineer working to achieve this high level of performance. Two case studies respectively frame the arguments for hurricane-impact and blast resistance glazing: Ground Zero World Trade Center Tower 3 Entrance Lobby, NYC and Norton Museum Extension, West Palm Beach, Florida.
