The mega-panels at The Barclays Center are made up of glass and aluminum curtain wall with weathering steel latticework factory installed to the mullions. They are typically 10 feet wide and range up to 40 feet tall. The pattern is impressive on each individual panel, but it’s even more impressive as the building takes shape and the overall pattern reveals itself. Every subtle twist and turn modeled by SHoP in the weathering steel latticework comes together seamlessly as each panel is installed.
The majority of the mega-panels are crane set with rigging methods developed specifically for the unique configurations. The model that was utilized for fabrication is also a helpful tool for planning installation means and methods. The field team is able to review access, model the rigging options and determine the best course of action. SHoP Construction employees are on the job site daily assisting with these efforts.
