After months of intensive glass assembly research and hundreds of mock-ups, MdeAS, together with executive architect B+H Architects, developed an innovative new glass spandrel system being used to redefine the tallest building in Canada, Toronto's 72-story First Canadian Place. As the original marble cladding began to fail, MdeAS proposed replacing 45,000 aging marble panels with 5,370 specially designed glass spandrel panels. Exhaustive research of industry-standard glass assemblies led to a custom frit-patterned white spandrel panel that meets exacting color, size, strength, performance and economic constraints. The extensive design renewal also included a renovation of the public, retail podium.
