Zen has access to the blueprints of this tower. I'll always trust his word over others.

O_O that's some progress, I haven't been in that area since Spring/Summer 2001, I remember looking up in amazement at the Towers.

Its good to see greatness rise once again.

More good news, my new system can handle the Google Sketchup model I have created based on the prints. My old system was taking 5 seconds just to rotate it. Expect to see pics of the model, as needed, in the future.


PS: Windows 7 is wonderful. Windows 7 home premium 64bit, AMD Phenom quad core 4gb ram and a terabyte of hard drive space on a RAID 5 array.

it may not look it but that model is over 1gb of data.

Accurate right down to the support beams inside the MEP shafts.

Is it possible for you to share some of your model?
This way we can render it and upload pictures?
Maybe make a "4D", create a rendered time lap video?
Or you could share simplified floorplans?

I can't share the files, I'm sure they are covered by the non-disclosure agreement. We'll see about some 4D in the future.

Some old articles, but first time I've come across it and don't think either were ever posted here.

A USGlass Magazine Special Investigative Report:
U.S. Suppliers Do the Design Work but Overseas Company Gets the Job for Portion of One World Trade Center

March 31, 2009

by Tara Taffera

The following is a special investigative report conducted by USGlass magazine over the past few months concerning the glass to be used at One World Trade Center.


http://www.usgnn.com/newsHotNewsAlert20090331.htm




Much of the same article as above, but has some additional information regarding the office floor glass.

http://www.usglassmag.com/USGlass/20...eedomtower.htm

"Viracon Supplies Glass for Upper Sections of Freedom Tower

In a bit of good news, floors 21-106 of One World Trade Center will contain glass from a U.S. company—Viracon Inc. has been awarded the contract to supply the glass. Viracon began fabrication on One World Trade Center at its Owatonna, Minn., facility in 2008.

The company says it will continue to fabricate glass well into 2010. The building will contain just less than one million square feet of glass, making it one of the largest contracts the company has been awarded in its history. The company was selected based on its ability to achieve stringent design and performance criteria for glass, according to a company press release.

“The architects at SOM relied on Viracon to provide a glass product that marries form and function together to achieve the design intent of the project with highly functional glass performance in terms of energy efficiency, security and safety,” says Brad Austin, Viracon’s senior vice president, in a press release.

SOM’s design for One World Trade Center requires extremely long pieces of glass that are highly transparent and, at the same time, provide energy efficiency and security. Viracon installed custom fabrication equipment to meet the needs of the project. “To create the feeling of openness, the architects challenged us to fabricate exceptionally large-sized insulating glass units, which are well above the industry standard,” says Rick Voelker, vice president of technical services at Viracon. “The glass sizes to be used are approximately two feet longer than typical fabrication limits.” Viracon made significant investments into equipment and material processing in order to accommodate the increased sizes.

With all the transparency created by such large pieces of glass, energy efficiency became an immediate challenge. In response, SOM specified Viracon’s VRE-54 coating on highly transparent low-iron glass for the project. The VRE coating is referred to as a hybrid coating because of its ability to simultaneously provide a crisp neutral appearance, combined with high levels of energy performance and light transmission.

Thanks for posting Nexis! I can't believe how short the Deutsche Bank Building now looks.

...a new concept! Rent thespace before the building is finished to get some early revenue. Just don't expect much in the way of amenities!
