“Where Possible Lives”
– Rogers, Arkansas

 

Among the fastest-growing areas in the nation, Rogers, Arkansas also has an increasing need for strong infrastructure. Measuring an expansive 236,000 square feet, Hunt Tower took two years to complete, and each component fits together seamlessly for a successful project with a striking design. The building is LEED®-certified through the U.S. Green Building Council’s green building program and has achieved the level of LEED Silver®.

 

Coming into the project with valuable knowledge of the area, local architecture firm Core Architects, Inc. provided unique design insight and innovative concepts. The team worked with general contractors at Crossland Construction to establish realistic initial blueprints that best matched the public bid – suiting the residents, proposed equipment and project itself. Tristar Glass served as the glass fabricator working closely with glazing contractor ACE Glass Construction Corporation to ensure each glass component was manufactured and installed with strength and precision.

 

DESIGN HIGHLIGHTS
The 10-story building, which houses multiple tenants, is the tallest in Benton County, Arkansas and stands as a beacon of modern design and possibility. Generous streams of natural light flow through the reflective glass and light sequin metallic finish curtain wall, filling the open office spaces with a soft radiance and creating a productive, healthy and enjoyable workplace environment.

 

Hunt Tower, a Class A office building, gently reflects the green landscape, allowing tenants and visitors the unique opportunity to take advantage of the area’s panoramic views. By incorporating 11,450 square feet of garden terrace, occupants are able to enjoy 360° views of the area while benefiting from quality natural light through advanced daylighting systems.

 

CHALLENGES
Timing of the over 80,000 plus square feet of Kawneer’s 1600 Wall System™2 Curtain Wall installation, 40,000 square feet of panel requirements, and floor slab progress needed to be closely managed. The tower features a wing wall with the curtain wall extending beyond the building, which made for a challenging installation without traditional swing stages or boom lifts.

 

SOLUTIONS

  • Each component was fabricated and approved from the shop drawings, allowing a true fit. ACE Glass also fabricated 40,000 square feet of APS-WCE 175RS dryset/rain screen panel system used in cladding the two vertical structures.
  • 1600 Wall System™2 Curtain Wall provided a contemporary, light-filled workplace promoting collaboration and inspiring creativity. The system includes 12" deep exterior covers for aesthetics and shading on some elevations. For added thermal efficiency and minimized heat transfer, high-performance 1" insulating glass from Vitro Architectural Glass with Solarcool® Gray and clear Solarban® 60 low-emissivity coatings on the glass surfaces were used. Also featured throughout are Kawneer’s 350 Medium Stile Entrances and top floor waterproof aluminum balcony railings made from curtain wall.
