This vast 7-storey, double-glazed atrium wall is impressive at 37m high. The curving wall follows 60m long arc. Glass is supported on a custom-designed edge supported bracket that offers four elements of adjustability including in/out and rotational pivoting. The loading capacity of the bow truss system is equivalent to two fully loaded eighteen-wheeler trucks. At its completion, this technically complex project was believed to be the largest bow truss in Canada.
