Parking Garage Façade with W.S. Tyler Architectural Mesh

W.S. Tyler as Manufacturers

Liberty Mutual Insurance employs more than 50,000 people in approximately 900 offices throughout the world. The latest Liberty Mutual Insurance office building was built in Plano, a suburb of Dallas, Texas. 


LEED Silver certified office building with W.S. Tyler Mesh

The Liberty Mutual Campus is LEED Silver certified and 20 percent more energy efficient than a typical office building. Sustainable and environmentally friendly materials as well as energy-efficient methods were used in the design and construction.

For the facade cladding of the multi-story parking garage, the architects from Omniplan chose wire mesh from W.S. Tyler. More than 5,500 parking lots are covered by the semi-transparent stainless steel woven wire mesh. Over a total area of 50,000 square feet, the façade of the multi-story parking garage is cladded with mesh specification EGLA-MONO 5001.


W.S. Tyler Architectural Mesh combines the advantages of transparency and design in a unique way. Due to their functional and aesthetic properties, architectural mesh offers a wide range of possible applications in the architecture of parking structures. They impress with their elegant appearance and meet the highest demands in terms of safety, stability and weather resistance.


The semi-transparency of EGLA-MONO 5001 enables natural ventilation and lighting of the garage. Due to the 43% open area of the mesh, costly ventilation systems and artificial light sources during the day can be dispensed by not only reducing energy costs but also having a positive environmental impact.


Seamless mesh integration into the façade design

A tensioning system, in which the connection elements are invisibly concealed behind the mesh, was especially developed for this project by W.S. Tyler. The unique hidden tensioning system blends the mesh façade seamlessly into the design of the parking structure.

Car park cladding with HAVER Architectural Mesh

 

Liberty Mutual Insurance, which offers its clients a wide range of insurance products and services, employs more than 50,000 people in approximately 900 offices throughout the world. The latest Liberty Mutual Insurance office building was built in Plano, a suburb of Dallas, Texas. With a height of 300 feet, the Liberty Mutual Campus is the tallest office project in Plano.


In addition to two eleven-storey office towers and a seven-storey car park with 5,500 parking lots, the state of the art campus offers their 4,000 employees much more than just office space. With restaurants, shops, apartments, health clubs, day care centers and many other amenities, the complex enables employees the chance to make their workday as enjoyable and productive as possible.

For the facade cladding of the multi-storey car park, the architects from Omniplan chose wire mesh from Haver & Boecker. More than 5,500 parking lots are covered by the semi-transparent stainless steel woven wire mesh. Over a total area of 4,900 m², the façade of the multi-storey car park is clad with 422 mesh elements of weave type EGLA-MONO 5001.


HAVER Architectural Mesh combines the advantages of transparency and design in a unique way. Due to their functional and aesthetic properties, architectural mesh offers a wide range of possible applications in the architecture of car parks. They impress with their elegant appearance and meet the highest demands in terms of safety, stability and weather resistance.


The semi-transparency of the HAVER Architectural Mesh EGLA-MONO 5001 enables natural ventilation and lighting of the car park. Due to the 43% open area of the mesh, costly ventilation systems and artificial light sources during the day can be dispensed with – this not only reduces energy costs but also has a positive environmental impact.


Seamless mesh integration into the façade design

The mesh façade of the multi-storey car park was integrated in a special way into the façade design of the office building. The vertical structure of the office tower was continued on the west and south facades of the car park using wire mesh elements of up to 24 m long. In the other areas of the mesh façade, 6.50 m long elements were orientated in a staggered pitch to create a unique façade appearance.


A tensioning system, in which the fastening elements are almost invisibly concealed behind the mesh, was especially developed for this project by Haver & Boecker. In this way, the mesh façade blends seamlessly into the façade design.
