NeaCera Terra-cotta Suncreen Vizors from Avenere Cladding offer a host of benefits when utilized on a façade. They provide an effective means of protecting against ultraviolet rays in summer months, reducing high energy costs by deterring heat gain through glass applications. In addition to their cost and energy-saving benefits, sunscreens provide comfort in the summer through light filtration and diffusion and add a bold, unique aesthetic accent to any building façade. NeaCera Vizors come in three distinct shapes, Baguette, Lamella, and Quad.
This bank and credit card giant added this 2-story, 200,000-square-foot office building to their existing 316-acre campus east coast campus. NeaCera Terra-cotta Sunscreen Vizors paired with rainscreen cladding panels came together to create a cohesive and modern façade for this company. The building’s façade features 21,000-square-feet of 3-different colored rainscreen panels, Rustic Canyon, Burnt Sienna, and Brick Red natural. These three different colored panels were thoughtfully chosen and intentionally placed to create a one-of-a-kind pattern along the building’s expanse.
The goal of the architect was to create a bold and impactful façade that would blend into the existing campus while promoting sustainability and wellness. With non-sequential installation, the architect was able to reimagine their design and adapt the panel placement post-installation to fulfill their vision. A fully tested system with up to a 30-year warranty, NeaCera Terra-cotta Cladding Sunscreen and Rainscreen Solutions were the ideal fit for this project.
Built to accommodate the growth of this influential institution with sustainability and green design in mind, it received Green Globe Certification. Employing energy-efficient technology was a fundamental design principle for the architects, and the use of NeaCera Terra-cotta sunscreens helped to achieve this. The use of Lamella-shaped NeaCera sunscreens provides thermal comfort, natural light, and reduces glare along the expansive glass front façade of the building. Other energy-efficient pursuits included the use of integrated Building Control Systems to optimize the energy use for heating, cooling, and lighting systems, and the use of higher-efficiency HVAC systems.
