Tension Façade System
The City of Boston and developer Commonwealth Ventures had a desire to create a parking garage façade that would add beauty to the neighborhood. To achieve their goals they retained Spalding Tougias Archtects in conjunction with local artist Joanne Kaliontzis.
The Construction Manager, Suffolk Construction, contracted with Bunting using a Design Assist Project Delivery Method. This allowed Spaulding Tougias to focus on the design while Bunting focused on the engineering, fabrication, and installation of the facade system. The tension facade system creates maximum free air flow while reducing the carrying weight on the precast concrete.
The imaging process was accomplished by blending direct print technologies with Bunting's ImagePerf technology. The result created one of the largest public art displays in Massachusetts.
