Solar protection with architectural mesh receives LEED certification
EMU Mark Jefferson Science Complex
Transparent solar protection made of metallic mesh for the Mark Jefferson Science Complex in Michigan, USA.
Working in collaboration with the architects at Lord Aeck & Sargent, GKD developed large-format vertical shading louvers using Omega 1510 architectural mesh. The 89 individual elements of the solar protection system with a total area of 929 m² offer improved energy efficiency, while also providing transparency on every story.
This solar protection with GKD architectural mesh was awarded LEED Silver certification.
