We are proud to announce that Giroux Glass has completed yet another beautiful project: the new BioSpace building at Cal State University, in Los Angeles. The recently-finished project incorporates some beautiful design work that truly mirrors the likely future accomplishments to take place within its walls. This venue will, among other activities, house a training program to prepare emerging entrepreneurs to launch their own job-creating, bioscience ventures. How better to motivate creative minds than by enveloping them in open spaces awash with light?
Giroux Glass’ project manager Dave Brewster, and the CAD department worked closely together to meet the high standards we demand in all of our projects. The architect on the project, Lundstrom and Associates, provided vision, and assisted the general contractor, Sundt Construction, in making the blueprints come alive on the construction site.
Giroux Glass installed the curtain wall system provided by Oldcastle Building Envelope, on the exterior of the building and the glass-enclosed stair system in the atrium area. The handrail system is polished stainless steel and runs continuously, with seamless welded joints. The stand-offs are also polished stainless steel and are a perfect match with the glass guardrails. We want to thank Glasswerks and N2 Design for their hard work on this part of the project.
The Biospace Building was a complete success, and Sundt Construction made a point to express their appreciation for the contribution made by Giroux Glass and its team. We want to give a special thanks to Karen Schleuning with OBE for her extra effort in ensuring that everything was at our shop on time to meet our promised deadlines.
