0Tubelite_UT-SandyCommercePk_RobertCasey330Utah’s new Sandy Commerce building boasts floor-to-ceiling glass with mountain views thanks in part to the storefront, curtainwall and entrance systems provided by Tubelite Inc. All of Tubelite’s systems are manufactured using aluminum with recycled content and are finished in clear anodize by Linetec.
PRISM recently highlighted the building’s high-performance finishes and façade, and their contribution to the property’s energy efficiency and sustainability goals. Recognizing its environmentally responsible design and construction, the project earned LEED® Silver certification through the U.S. Green Building Council.
Owned by The Boyer Company and designed by Babcock Design, the five-story, 120,958-square-foot, Class A building is visible to more than 170,000 vehicles traveling each day on I-15. “A sleek, modern façade captures the reflection of the surrounding mountains to passersby,” describes Babcock Design’s project architect, Chad Littlewood, AIA. “Floor-to-ceiling glass and an open floor plan provide all employees with natural light and beautiful views. Likewise, low-emitting materials found throughout the building provide occupants with maximum health and comfort.”
Linetec’s eco-friendly anodize emits no VOCs and provides one of the most durable finishes for architectural aluminum products. Its proprietary process creates a frosty matte appearance that hides small defects common in recycled aluminum, and meets or exceeds all AAMA 611 specifications. When it is time for the finished architectural products to be removed after a long lifetime of use on the Utah office building, the anodized aluminum is 100 percent recyclable.
