1250 Broadway – Transperfect Glass StairNew York, New York

  • DeSimone Facades and Structural teams collaborated to engineer and design a boutique glass stair connecting the fifth and sixth floors of Transperfect’s new offices at 1250 Broadway
  • Facades team engineered the structural glass treads, guards, handrails, glass-to-glass and metal-to-glass connections
  • Glass treads are supported by the steel frame engineered by the Structural team
  • Both teams worked closely together to determine the loads, understand the resulting movements, and how to accommodate these without over stressing the glass structure
