Adobe Utah Campus
Location: Lehi, Utah
Architect: WRNS Studios
Facade Design: Innovation Glass
A unique set of design parameters presented by the architectural design team at WRNS Studios resulted in the new VS1 mullion design. 42' openings required production of an extra deep 12.75' mullion with thicker walls that would resist lateral buckling loads. The project also features the standard 10" mullion mounted on the exterior to provide a flush glazed finish to an interior gymnasium. Another challenge was the Zone 4 seismic design requirement of the building, requiring the VS1 to accommodate 6" of in-plane lateral displacement during a seismic event.
