san francisco moma facade
Design assist, shop drawings, engineering, tooling, and fabrication of composite rainscreen panels.
This is the largest application of composites on a building facade to date in the US. K&A’s R&D efforts have resulted in an FRP panel – the first of it’s kind – which passes the NFPA 285 fire test required for such an application. The lightweight FRP cladding saved an enormous amount of weight and installation cost in the construction of the facade compared to the GFRC alternative.
