Allana Buick & Bers, Inc. (ABBAE) was retained by Integrus Architecture to provide Window Wall Consultation Services for the Spokane Public Facilities District. ABBAE was asked to evaluate the entire window wall system of the INB Performing Arts Center and the Spokane Convention Center and offer options and cost estimates for repairs.
The window wall systems of the INB Performing Arts Center and the Spokane Convention Center were installed in 1974 and were closing in on the end of their 50 year life cycle. ABBAE was asked to develop conceptual designs and engineering alternatives to replace/updated the window wall systems and provide budget estimations for each alternative.
After reviewing existing documentation, a thorough site visit to assess the condition of the existing systems, and data analysis, ABBAE prepared a systems selection report discussing the pros and cons of each alternative systems options. The report included options for framing, glazing and aesthetic components and a cost-analysis of all proposed components.
