Sure they will, This space is going to be a lot like the space on the recently completed; "Aspire Tower" in the Middle East.

Technical and safety concerns plus the client's desire for smooth curves (you know, for 'maintenance equipments' ).


From http://www.gensler.com/uploads/docum...11_10_2011.pdf :


Quote:
[page 12]

Of major concern in both of these cases [w/o aluminum vertical mullion] was the impact that
peak negative wind-load pressure may have on vertical mullion
line. In both cases—structural sealant or gasket—the vertical
mullion has no hard material used to stabilize vertically,
increasing the possibility of glass being dislocated from the
vertical joint causing danger to people below. Even though
these two systems had significantly less glass panels per floor,
and provided desired visual transparency, they did not provide
the desired level of safety for both the client and the Gensler
fašade design team, and therefore could not be utilized.
However, they did inform the next set of schemes that used the
best ideas from all systems analyzed thus far.

In one of the meetings, it was concluded that to ease access for
building maintenance equipme
nt, all unnecessary horizontal
ledges should be avoided.

...

[page 13]

At that time, all of the different studies on the curtain wall were
summarized in three main schemes—“shingle,” “staggered” and
"[I]smooth[/B]”—with pros and cons inclusive of estimated cost. While
these issues were being resolved, the “light pollution” issue was
asked to be addressed. The resolution of this issue ultimately
decided the scheme that will be used for the tower.

...

[page 15]

The total vertical aluminum mullion depth is 114 mm (4Ż”)
plus addition of the glass fin,
continuously connected to back
side of the mullion. The glass fin is a laminated assembly with
a total 26-mm thickness and up to 300 mm in depth. The top
of the building at Zone 9 has an iteration of vertical mullion
without a glass fin due to easier maintenance and exposure to
the weather conditions. The total depth of mullion at this zone
is designed at 250 mm.

Another variation of the vertical mullion is at the area of accent
“V” strike. Vertical mullions here are used to house and support
a dense LED lighting fixture layout
, and to use a deeper mullion
was a practical necessity.
