United Therapeutics Headquarters Complex choose an extruded aluminum louver, model A4097, to help with air flow and water drainage. In addition, horizontal sunshades were used to shade East and West elevations, where low sun angles make sun control challenging.
Centria Formawall panels were used on top of and below the walkways to help provide thermal efficiency and moisture control.
