The bold terra cotta exterior stands out on campus as the grand achievement of several years of planning, scheduling, and construction. We performed, with our sister company  all portions of the exterior façade. This allowed us to coordinate the transition details of the different curtain wall and glazing systems with the different terra cotta rain-screen systems. In the end there were over 700 different terra cotta tile shapes and sizes. It is by far the most complicated terracotta project in existence today.
