Curtainwall installed in five weeks as part of fast-track project schedule

EAGAN, MN – May 27, 2013 – Field crews installed the last remaining curtainwall unit at the Hyundai Motor America Headquarters on May 21st. The six story, 504,000 square foot high-rise structure includes 135,000 square feet of custom curtainwall installed by Enclos.

The south, east and west elevation curtainwall system includes laminated insulated low-iron glass with enhanced acoustical properties. The north elevation includes insulated low iron glazing. Both acoustical and non-acoustical curtainwall unit modules span 10’ x 15’ and include a ceramic frit pattern.

The project team is delivering Hyundai’s new headquarters campus as part of a fast-track schedule, with all trades participating to accelerate design, engineering, material procurement and construction. Curtainwall systems were installed in a mere five weeks. Enclos’ field team is currently installing 30,000 square feet of soffit panels, 27,000 square feet of channel glazing, and 9,000 square feet of point-fixed glass fin walls.

The $150 million Fountain Valley, California home to multinational automaker Hyundai Motor Company will seek LEED Gold certification, and is scheduled for completion in late 2013.
