This custom system was developed specifically to meet the unique requirements of this application.
An entire new aluminum framing system was engineered to provide a watertight and structurally adequate support for not only the glass but also the custom designed sun control system of louvers that are an integral part of this hurricane resistant skylight.
Gammans also designed and fabricated the 6" x 16" tubular structural steel rafters which were set by NJG with extreme accuracy using " Total Station" technology.
The diagonal set of the frames was part of the architects visionary concept and was determined by the path of the sun and the sun control louvers.
Careful coordination with the architect over the many details have really come together to provide the aesthetics and ambience the architect desired on this project.
