The Warner Building – the latest addition to downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan from Catalyst Development – is an exciting mixed-use venue housing some of the area’s most notable businesses and nonprofits, as well as 45 high-quality living options.
The vision of Architect TowerPinkster was for guests to enjoy endless views of Kalamazoo and beyond from various indoor and outdoor gathering spaces.
Glass+Metal Craft helped fulfill this intent with the launch application of its new VENTUS Pre-Engineered Glass and Metal Windscreens installed on the 5th and 7th floors. The proprietary G+MC architectural system consists of modules of 13/16th laminated glass supported by custom stainless steel posts and connecting hardware. This installation also incorporates a glass drink rail.
VENTUS is readily scalable to need – the modules at Warner feature 2,000 square feet of 6-ft tall glass; eliminates the time and cost of a custom design; and is a proven installation, speeding flow for glazier Architectural Glass and Metals, Inc.
Bottom line: VENTUS is a stunning, readily available windscreen system that also acts to lower the Total Cost of Ownership.
