DRPILLA provided structural analysis and design for this retail establishment’s front façade comprised of towering glass panels. Design included the components and associated assemblies used to connect the building’s existing and newly constructed primary structural components, including glass and stair railing design. Intricate detail went into the analysis of the height and thickness of the glass panels to account for deflections and imposed wind loads.
