Project Synopsis

The 680,000-square foot hospital was designed by the architectural firm of Hammel, Green & Abrahamson (HGA), a leading designer of healthcare facilities, with offices throughout the United States. JEB supplied the fabricated glass for the hospital, which is dedicated to inpatient care, including surgery, women’s health and pediatrics. As the largest healthcare builder in the country, Turner Construction Co. of Philadelphia, PA was the natural choice to manage the construction of the new hospital. JEB also worked cohesively with local glazing contractor, National Glass and Metal Company, Inc. of Horsham, PA. JEB fabricated and supplied a combination of 92,500 sq ft of vision glass units and 54,500 sq ft of non-vision spandrel glass units. The 1” insulating glass units consist of ¼” PPG Solarban® 60 clear glass with a ½” black air spacer. Also fabricated were 1” clear glass units made of ¼” PPG Solarban 60 (3) with ½” silk-screened lines and a ½” black air spacer. The 1” spandrel glass units consist of ¼” clear PPG Solarban 60 (2) with a ½” black air spacer and a warm grey frit (4). Remaining 1” spandrel glass units consist of ¼” clear glass with ½” silk-screened lines and a ½” black air spacer with a warm grey frit (4). JEB’s energy-efficient glass is just one of the building’s technological innovations.
