More about this product

Occupying two city blocks in a fast-growing metropolis, the Omni Fort Worth Hotel and Residences is more than just a dazzling new jewel on the city skyline. It is also the latest example of the burgeoning green building trend in the hospitality industry.

Vitro Products in Omni Forth Hotel

Designed by HOK, one of the country’s leading green building practitioners, the 34-story structure features a variety of environmentally progressive attributes, including the use of Solarban® z50 glass, a solar control, low-e glass from Vitro Architectural Glass with a sparkling steel-blue-gray tint and an unprecedented mix of low exterior reflectance and high visible light transmittance.

HOK united Solarban® z50 by Vitro Architectural Glass glass with aqua-blue Vistacool® Azuria® glass, another tinted Vitro glass, to create a richly saturated blue-gray curtain wall that makes the new tower one of Fort Worth’s most identifiable icons.

While color and aesthetics were motivating forces behind HOK’s selection of glass, its role in the building’s overall energy management system was another critical consideration.

Vitro Products in Omni Forth Hotel

This combination of performance characteristics allows the glass to transmit significant levels of natural light, while simultaneously blocking most of the sun’s radiant energy. The result is less reliance on artificial lighting and a smaller burden on the building’s air-conditioning system, an important consideration in Fort Worth’s hot, densely populated urban environment.
