155 North Wacker Drive continues to offer tenants like Skadden, EY, and Mercer an ideal office environment, brimming with the latest advances in business technology. Featuring full-height, energy-efficient glass and column-free bays, JBC keeps this LEED Platinum building as productive as it is energy efficient. It is Wired Certified Platinum and also earned a WELL Health-Safety Rating.

Christopher Glass & Aluminum, Inc. installed VS1-g, which uses a glass mullion in lieu of an extruded aluminum blade, was selected for the renovation of two down town Chicago lobby facades. Unique to VS1-g+ is the ability to achieve all glass walls with un-spliced, full height glass fins spanning in this case 50' clear, a record for Chicago and the US. The glass fin is 32” deep, quadruple laminated, 2” thick and is comprised of low iron, tempered glass with SG interlayers. The fins even at that depth literally “disappear” visually when viewing the wall from the exterior.

This project also required the removal of existing one-way tensioned cable glass walls. iG provided the structural analysis, jacking assemblies, custom brackets and method statement to detention the cables and safely remove them readying for the installation of the new ultra transparent walls. At all levels this project embodies the technical depth of the Innovation Glass LLC team to rise to the innovative occasion to create excellent architecture
