Curved Glass Stairwell Offers Safety and Style for Medical Centre

Colorado State University's new Health and Medical Centre features a prominent four-level staircase that spirals upward towards a large skylight, which streams vast amounts of light into the heart of the building. Glasshape’s Bent Tempered Glass, installed into Trex Commercial Products' ‘Vista’ railing design, allows a great feeling of openness, while at the same time offering a safe and secure environment around the stairwell.

Glasshape was contracted to Trex Commercial Products to scan the staircase structure during the construction phase and create an as-built 3D CAD model. The CAD model was then further developed by adding in their ‘Vista’ railing design to obtain final bent glass sizes and radii. In total, over 250 pieces of glass were custom fabricated by Glasshape, including the bent glass smoke baffles, and delivered to site ready for installation.

"We contracted Glasshape to laser scan this project, and subsequently provide the glass," explains Carl Ogren, Trex Commercial Products. "Glasshape scanned the project and provided us with a cleaned-up 3D Model for us to design our post mounted guardrail system into. The project ended up being extremely successful for all parties involved."
