  • Location Cleveland, OH

Sometimes we bring new life to old structures. This thirty-two-story office tower in downtown Cleveland was constructed in 1967. The 1,462,628 gross-square-foot building is adjoined on all four sides by public plazas and landscaped with granite pavers and planting areas. We conducted a multi-phased project to make several improvements to the fully occupied building, including complete replacement of the fire alarm system and pumps, complete renovation of the existing building plaza, and an extensive upgrade of the building’s MEP systems. Additionally, we worked with existing asbestos and a building that was continually and fully occupied during the project.  

With the Façade Replacement project, we are helped the building become more than just a pretty face. After 45 years, the existing metal panel and glass façade of the office tower was in poor condition, resulting in high energy consumption for heating and cooling.  dck worldwide served as Construction Manager as Constructor (CMc) to furnish and install approximately 335,500-square-feet of new energy efficient curtain wall facade system, including a renewable energy photo-voltaic system on the 36,000-square-foot roof.
