“One of the key aspects of glass selection is to balance the solar heat gain coefficient against the visible light transmittance to get the best overall performance,” said Chris Minnerly, principal of The Design Alliance Architects, who specified the glass. “The glass assemblies have to have the best UV transmission in certain light spectrums to facilitate the growth of plants,” he said in the release.

 

Minnerly specified two triple-pane insulating glass units  to meet performance requirements in different parts of the building. Sungate 500 Starphire glass will be installed above the sunshade and light shelves, while Solarban 60 Starphire glass will be used below.
