Woodward ITS Building Basks in the Glow of Kalwall

Powers recently completed the Kalwall translucent façades and skyroof at the Woodward world headquarters in Ft. Collins.  This monumental project featured over 20,000 square feet of highly insulated, Kalwall sandwich panels on the 300,000 square feet ITS building… short for industrial turbomachinery systems.  Designed by Ghafari, the building features a massive shed skyroof and a series of light monitors and clerestories providing perfectly diffused natural daylight throughout the high-tech manufacturing space.  Daylight studies were completed by our team to help dial in the light transmission levels and maximize energy efficiency. In addition to the daylighting scope, Powers is also completing a series of large, Modernfold operable partitions in the common area / café.  Gensler led the interior design and was tasked with the challenge of creating a space that will spark innovation and collaboration… “taking Woodward into a new era with an open concept suited to recruit and retain millennials”, according to Steve Stiesmeyer, director of corporate real estate for Woodward.1   Sources:...
