Project news:

Fairbanks Imaging Center braves the cold with natural light
"The organizing idea of the facility is to layer and group patient spaces to require the fewest steps from waiting areas through dressing rooms and into the scan rooms for each radiology modality. The layering scheme puts the radiology exam spaces, which are typically dimmed, to the interior of the plan and patient waiting and staff spaces at the edges, maximizing access to daylight. The glass face at the east elevation brings daylight to each patient waiting area on the first and second floors." óMartha Hanlon, project architect

The basics: Located in Fairbanks, Alaska, one of the coldest cities in America with an average annual temperature of 26.9 degrees, the 55,000 square-foot, $16.5 million Fairbanks Imaging Center stands out with its ample glazing that floods the interior with natural light.

The players:
 Architect, Martha Hanlon Architects, Fairbanks; owner, Greater Fairbanks Community Hospital Foundation, Fairbanks; contract glazier, Bucher Glass, Fairbanks; general contractor, Ghemm Co., Fairbanks; glass supplier, PPG Industries, Pittsburgh; curtain wall system supplier, Vistawall Architectural Products, Terrell, Texas.

The glass and systems:
Vistawall Reliance TC thermally broken frame system with 1-inch insulating glass units using Cariba tint on the outboard lite and Solarban 60 film on the No. 3 surface.
