A hybrid that combines the features of a wall with a window where individual panels have no structural dependency with adjacent panels. These panels can achieve a variety of architectural and performance intentions that could not be achieved with traditional construction and are designed for efficient production and easy transport.
Load Bearing System
A true soup to nuts building product customized to the architectural requirements. The process includes the design, fabrication, and install of Island derived exterior load bearing, interior shear wall, hollow core concrete plank, and precast concrete stairs. Structure, envelope and egress all in one.
Unitized curtain walls entail factory fabrication and assembly of panels and include factory glazing. These completed units are hung on the building structure to form the building enclosure. Unitized curtain wall has the advantages of: speed; lower field installation costs; and quality control within an interior climate controlled environment.
Facades can be complex, and whether it is a privacy screen, louver system, balcony, or stress skin, Island has developed our system to not only accept these features, but to integrate them into the performance and erection of the wall, as a turn key part of our wall system. We work closely with architects to make sure these elements are seamless.
