This landmark monumental skylight was completely renovated using a Gammans Series 350 skylight framing system and GSS 518 mullions.  Our system was selected for it's flexibility of design, and performance.

The re-glaze was done with a 9/16" thick HS Lami by the WS Neilsen Company.

About 2 years following this renovation Atlanta, and this hotel suffered terrific damages from a tornado.  Consulting engineers were called in to assess the damages and were amazed at how well the skylight portion of the building had performed.

Although 70 floors of curtain wall glass had rained down on the skylight and cracked almost all of the skylight glass, none had penetrated the PVB Innerlayer of the safety glass or damaged the internal framing.

New caps and covers were furnished by GSS for the remedial work.  In addition Gammans was selected to provide design engineering and custom extrusions to rebuild the 10th floor swimming pool barrelvault skylight which had lost most of it's original glazing.
