Constitutional glazing at Syracuse University
“To alleviate some of the headaches associated with customized, complex systems and time-critical projects, our unitized systems streamline this process by pre-fabricating the various components into large, pre-assembled units that can be crane-lifted from the truck and quickly installed on the building.” —Ken Robbins, Wausau regional sales and marketing manager


The basics: Newhouse III, a Syracuse University School of Public Communications building, features a large entry curtain wall with the first amendment displayed on the glass. The silk-screened words “Freedom of Speech” rise up 6-feet on the 74,000-square-foot, $30 million building that will be dedicated on Sept. 19.
The players:
 Architects, Polshek Partnership Architects, New York; curtain wall supplier, Wausau Window and Wall Systems, Wausau, Wis.; aluminum framing supplier, Ajay Glass Co., Rochester, N.Y.; glass fabricator, Viracon, Owatonna, Minn.; silk-screened glass supplier, Arch Deco Glass, Columbus, Ohio; frame finisher, Linetec, Wausau.

The glass and systems:
16,800-square-foot unitized curtain wall using Wausau’s 7250 Series. Glass with a ceramic frit used for much of the curtain wall, with the silk-screen design on the entry portion.
