The Pinnacle Skylight System was chosen to replace the leaking skylights becaust of its leak-ristant sill enclosure guards against air infiltration and water intrusion
One of main goals was to create a green, energy-efficient daylighting solution. This was a major roofing project with 21 skylights requiring replacement.
The VELUX Pinnacle Skylight System was chosen because its leak-resistant sill enclosure guards against air infiltration and water intrusion, and it has a large span capability.
The centerpiece of this project was an expansive atrium skylight over the Memorial Hall, which contains photovoltaic film laminated within the glass, converting solar energy into electricity while allowing some light transmittance in the public area.
Besides being aesthetically pleasing, integrating photovoltaic glass into the skylights meant that solar panels would not need to be removed in any future roof repairs.
