As with any project, keeping costs down for highly custom installations is always important - even more so for Burbank Town Center. The design team needed to establish unique ways to keep manufacturing costs to a minimum with over 100 unique panel types needed for the project.
By coordinating the project architect, the misc. metals subcontractor, and the installation team Parasoleil was able to design a comprehensive panel system that used the minimum number of unique panel size and designs maintained the original design intent of the architect and responded to the field conditions on site. We worked closely with both the GC and installers to make sure all of the installation details were clear. We even cut a code into each panel to visually explain to the installer how and where each panel is as going to be installed. With over a hundred custom sized panels that can be flipped and rotated 8 different ways, it’s important that we make the installers job easier, not harder.
