San Francisco


K&A Scope:

Design assist, shop drawings, engineering, tooling, and fabrication of composite rainscreen panels.



The San Francisco MOMA project is the largest application of composites on a building facade to date in America. K&A’s R&D efforts resulted in an FRP panel -the first ever created for this use- that passes all tests required by NFPA 285, saving architects significant amounts of weight and money while still providing necessary protection against fires.


Fact: The lightweight design allowed us to save 15 tons of steel compared with GFRC materials.
