McKinsey & Co

Lucent was brought on by HITT Contracting to provide a traditional glazing solution outside of the current demountable wall system present in the space.  Perkins + Will selected an Oldcastle aluminum product with insulated glass to provide a low-profile, yet acoustically secure solution for the consultant space.  Neither form nor function were lost in the design change, as we were able to provide glass doors and sliders similar to that of the legacy space within the stated budget.  Existing slab height discrepancies created elevations changes that were outside of the system’s tolerances.  To offset this challenge, we field applied a matching break-metal under the bottom track and scribed it to the floor.  This alleviated the exposures and provided a clean continuous finish to the bottom track.
