Challenges
  • Comparably small, it still had 4 different types of wall & soffit assembly and a cladding which had to be laid on its pylon sign.
  • Its inherent request was that the cladding intersections had to be redrawn to align into a grid when observed in elevations.
  • We also faced several issues while determining corner and wall end details as the walls had different wall thicknesses for which we had to introduce different types of sub girts in the details to resolve them.
