Project ID: 39535
When the 92,000 sq. ft. Maryland Heights Community Center was renovated, it had a variety of design and aesthetic requirements and goals. The center needed to block unsightly local views and noise as well as the sun’s glare and heat for its athletes and visitors. At the same time, the aquatic center, track, double-court gym and weight room needed to be showered with natural light. All of these goals pointed to our UniQuad® translucent wall system as the best option. A major benefit in selecting our system was for its scalability and additional sound reduction capabilities. The East façade was specified with an STC acoustical interlayer to mask the noise coming from the neighboring highway without compromising on the building’s aesthetic. Our system was also beneficial for the project due to its ability to meet the curved and tapered wall design of the building, while boasting an impressive 10 ft. span in the process. At night, the space’s aesthetic is transformed by a glowing ribbon of translucent panels that are backlit by the interior lighting, giving the center the large presence within the community that the City of Maryland Heights was looking to accomplish.
