Customer:

The Octagon, originally constructed in 1839, is located on Roosevelt Island in Manhattan, N.Y., and is listed on the National Register of Historic Homes.

Challenge:

The Octagon, a decrepit and unstable building, needed to be rebuilt while mimicking the original structure.

Solution:

SilPruf sealant, an excellent candidate to consider for both weathersealing and structural glazing applications, was chosen to install the glass windows.

Results:

SilPruf can provide excellent long-term resistance to natural weathering, including ultraviolet radiation, high and low tempera-tures and rain and snow, with negligible change in elasticity.

 

                         :Octagon Tower:

Long-Lasting Silicone Performance

Roosevelt Island in Manhattan, N.Y., is home to the Octagon. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and designed by Alexander Jackson Davis, the Octagon was initially constructed in 1839 and opened in 1841. Arson and other factors rendered the Octagon decrepit and unusable for the past few decades.

 

Superior Products and Service:

In 2002, Becker and Becker of Fairfield, Conn., stabilized the Octagon Tower—the only remnant from the original structure—and designed two wings extending south and west of the Tower mimicking the layout of the original structure. The new construction allowed for 500 apartment units, a swimming pool, interior courtyard, fitness center, screening room, clubroom and gallery.

The caulking contractors for the project, A&B Caulking, chose to use SilPruf* SCS2000 sealant to install the glass windows, basing their decision

on service and quality of products. “We have used GE silicone sealants and adhesives in prior projects and have always been impressed not only by the products’ performance benefits, but also by the prompt service provided by their sales and distribution teams,” said Jim Tirelli, vice president at A&B Caulking.

An excellent candidate to consider for both weathersealing and structural glazing applications, SilPruf is a single component, medium-modulus, neutral cure silicone sealant adhesive that may be used on a wide variety of materials. The product’s high tensile and tear strength, combined with its capacity to absorb high elongation, make SilPruf sealant an excellent candidate to consider for protective glazing applications. When cured properly, SilPruf sealant can exhibit excellent long-term resistance to natural weathering, including ultraviolet radiation, high and low temperatures, and rain and snow, with negligible change in elasticity.

Prior to beginning the Octagon Tower project, tests were conducted to determine if application of primer was necessary before using SilPruf sealant. Based on the test results, Tirelli decided to use a primer on the metal joints and apply SilPruf sealant directly on the pre-cast concrete. The crew from A&B Caulking used approximately  1,500 gallons of SilPruf sealant for the project.

 

In addition to a range of top-notch products, the sales and distribution teams for GE sealants also provide superior service. Sales teams are involved in the projects from inception to completion, and provide their expert support in selection of appropriate products.

“We have used GE silicone sealants and adhesives in prior projects and have always been impressed not only by the products’ performance benefits, but also by the prompt service provided by their sales and distribution teams.”

 A Geometric Wonder

Standing in a Seismic Zone

GE Silicone and Comprehensive Technical Expertise Critical to CCTV Construction

 

The Challenge:

 Connecting Two Buildings in a Seismic Zone:

The winning design, shaped like two “L” shaped high-rise towers linked at the top and the bottom at an angle to form a loop, best described as a “Z criss-cross,” was planned for a modest 234 meters. However, the building’s unique shape created an irregular grid on the building’s façade with an open  center, a challenge for a structure that connected two separate buildings on a foundation in the middle of an earthquake zone.

Constructing 27,400 Pieces Safely and Quickly:

The building, centered with a curtainwall façade, required 27,400 pieces, all of untraditional shapes and sizes, to fit within an irregular structural frame totaling 100,000 square meters (~1.1 million square feet). In addition to the many pieces, the designer and the fabricator determined that the safest way to construct the many pieces into a “Z” shape was with “L” shaped joints, which were longer in vertical length than horizontal length.

The challenges mounted:

Irregular geometric pieces take longer to manufacture and install; safety for everyday use and within seismic conditions was paramount; and the international stage of the Olympics presented a hard, quickly-looming, deadline.

location: Beijing; China.

(custom multi-part mixture), GE SCS2903 SilPruf*, Pensil 300

 

The Solution:

 Excellent Technical Support and Sealant

 

Mechanical Properties:

The Chinese Government selected Beijing Jangho Curtain Wall Co., Ltd., the second biggest curtainwall fabricator in China, as the façade fabricator. The manufacturer of GE sealants and Jangho have had a strong history of collaboration and success.

“We needed a partner who had both a technical product advantage and the ability to manage the inevitable technical challenges that would come in creating a building with such an unusual design,” says Zhang Sheng, vice president at Jangho.

While Jangho recognized GE Sealants as excellent products, it would take more than that to construct the China Central Television (CCTV) building. Basic geometry implies that two equal size triangles will create four-sided shapes. The challenge was taking irregular geometric frames with lots of triangles within a system designed around rectangular calculations. Assembling such panels makes the dimensions difficult to control, so every millimeter counted, and excellent adhesion and flexibility to stick on the panels was critical.

In addition, to meet earthquake safety standards, the fabricator selected dual-laminated insulating glass, so the structural sealant needed to be applied into an “L” joint through narrow openings. Conventional SSG joints require a +/-12.5 percent movement. In examining the “L” joints needed for the project, the sealants team of technical experts determined that a +/- 15 percent movement was necessary.

“The technical experts for GE sealants spent countless hours working with our design department and going back and forth between the work site and our Beijing plant to find a solution for the uniquely sized pieces and “L” shaped joints,” says Sheng.

“Together we tested to find the right product that had the product consistency to fit within the sealant joints; and that is why we selectedGE sealants for the CCTV.”

Redefining Limitations:

The technical experts for GE sealants had clear challenges to consider in recommending the right mix of products. The design process resulted in two towers that, as independent towers, were prone to movement from the wind and surface temperature variations due to the amount of direct sunlight or shade on any given elevation.

GE SSG4400 UltraGlaze*, a high-strength, two-part elastomeric adhesive sealant for structural bonding, passes the ASTM C719 movement test at Class 12.5. Due to the large size of glass and the “L” shaped joints, +/-15 percent movement capacity was deemed necessary for this design. The sealants team conducted multiple tests on the work site and at Jangho’s lab to help determine that, with its excellent processing and flowability (which allowed the sealant to get within the uniquely shaped joints), coupled with its ability to accommodate the additional 15 percent movement,SSG4400 had the properties needed to successfully and safely construct the building.

Through a thorough analysis and deep technical discussions between the fabricator curtainwall providers and the sealants team, it was determined that SSG4400 would be “pumped” into the uniquely shaped joints. The consistency of SSG4400 in testing proved to be both viscous enough to hold the joints stable during the cure phase, as well as capable of flowing into tight spaces while thoroughly filling the cavity within.

The Result:

The CCTV building was completed in January 2008. Start to finish, the façade fabrication took about 18 months—six months quicker than the average for a building as complex as CCTV.

To stay on track with the aggressive timeline, Jangho ordered all of the aluminum extrusions and pieces prior to involving the sealants team. If Jangho, with the help of the sealants experts, hadn’t found a solution to the “L” shape joint, the project would have been significantly delayed and the original aluminum order would have been wasted.

“One of the reasons we partner with the manufacturer of GE sealants is because we are a local company and they are a global company,” says Sheng. “Once again, they helped us with global experience, tapping into their experience so that we could best serve our customer through their sealant laboratory and excellent training programs.”

Pioneered by GE. Refined by GE. With a history of dedication to innovation and excellence, today’s family of GE sealantproducts address a wide variety of the ever-inventive, increasingly demanding architecture found around the world. Outstanding durability, flexibility, and movement capability are fundamental to the high performance of GE sealants.

Sustainable Facades

One could have observed an absurd climatic change in the country where sudden rains, unbearable heat & lot of climatic issues arising. With the modernization of building facades lot of glass buildings coming up there is a need for Sustainable Façade.

The modern façade becomes Sustainable in regards to the thermal & functional performance not compromising on the aesthetics.

 

For any building two important aspects come to the developer

  • Investment on the construction of facade.

It is preferable for any building façade to be durable on the long run & usage of recyclable materials needs is increased. Fortunately most of the façade materials like Aluminium, Glass, ACP, Solid cladding has reusability properties, and one can recycle & reuse them.

  • Operating cost of the facade.

People have a tendency that as they are not the occupants of the buildings any low quality materials can be used & somehow the façade needs to be completed.

This is a wrong approach as in today’s scenario Operating cost is very high in terms of Electricity bills of HVAC, Lighting & various mechanical utilities used in a building. So it must be very crucial for the designer to save energy as & where possible. For example Glass is major transmitter of heat inside the building, hence Glass can be designed to suit the climatic conditions.

Core Aspect of an intelligent façade:

Façade are responsible for the comfort of the occupant within the building & at the same time consumption of Energy. One needs to incorporate various strategies to achieve Low Energy consumption in a building.

Various important Aspects of Effective Design:

  • Maximizing Day Lighting Strategies.
  • Blocking Heat in South & South West Area using Louvers & Blinds.
  • Insulating the Spandrels to block the heating of RCC structures.
  • Generating Electricity by using Photovoltaic cells.
  • Utilization of Pressure Differentials.

Classification of Intelligent Facades:

  • Single Skin Façade.
  • Double Skin Façade.
  • Combined Façade

Single Skin Façade:

To achieve a certain level of Solar Control in Single Skin façade following things to be done

  • Use Effective Solar Control Glass with Low Solar Factor & Low U values.
  • Use of better Gaskets (EPDM) to thermally break the heat transfer of conduction.
  • Pressure Equalized facades helps in proper Air Circulations inside the chambers to drive water & heat away trapped inside.
  • Use of perforated Panels in high heat areas to have optimized day lighting & blocking unwanted heat.
  • Various Internal Shading strategies can be adopted to block the Glare & incoming heat.

 

Double Skin Façade:

The term double skin facade refers to an arrangements with a glass in front of the actual building a facade. Solar control devices are placed in the cavity between these two skins, which protects them from the influences of weather and air pollution.

  • Solar shading helps achieve optimized temperature inside.
  • Re-radiation from the solar radiation is emitted in the central cavity.
  • Better Sound Control by creating a cavity in between two facades.
  • Widely used in high rises to have less effect of wind & cavity helps as natural ventilation zones.
  • Very Expensive in terms of cost, so very few building used.

 

Combined Facades

This is combination of single & double skin facades by providing a baffle panel in the vision area helping in reducing noise levels in the building.

  • Baffle panel is an additional panel in front of a window in a perforated or conventional panel.
  • Baffle Panel blocks lot of sound comes from the primary façade.
  • Baffle panel helps in solar screening.
  • Baffle panel needs to be openable for cleaning, & ventilation.

 

Conclusion:

Because of reduction energy resources and increasing cost in the world every day, energy conservation in buildings primarily focused on building systems. After 2010, targeting the energy crisis, which can produce its own energy, ventilation, heating and cooling that provides “intelligent facades” came up.

No doubt in the short run these facades are expensive but in Long run they pay you back in terms of Cost, Better Environment & Sustainability.
