University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) relied on Wausau Window and Wall Systems to create a unified, visual exterior for its new $100 million, seven-story tower. The new UPMC Passavant Pavilion is certified to meet U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® Rating System™.
When planning the 220,000-square-foot addition, architect Burt Hill and general contractor P.J. Dick Incorporated called on Wausau and D-M Products, Inc. Ten years earlier, the manufacturer and glazing contractor provided a curtainwall system for the adjoining UPMC Passavant Hospital. The team reunited to offer the same, dependable performance and familiar aesthetic, while adhering to strict construction timelines.
D-M Products installed 37,565 square feet of Wausau’s 8250 Series aluminum-framed curtainwall system. Highlighting the metallic tones and low-maintenance durability, the aluminum was finished by Linetec in clear anodize. The curtainwall helps maximize daylighting and views for the hospital’s visitors, patients and staff, which contribute to a healing environment.
