  • 1. Bacon & VanBuskirk EST 1937 Bacons Architectural SunShades

2. Bacons Architectural SunShades 3. Project:Eastern Illinois University Human Services Building Architect:A. Epstein of Chicago, IL

  • The Challenge
  • The Architect wanted attractive and durable 4 deep aluminum sunshades to be integrated with the second floor curtainwall horizontal strip windows while controlling direct sunlight and heat gain.The Architect specified the fenestration and the sunshades be furnished, installed and warranted from a single supplier.
  • No one bid the project..And it was over-budget.
  • Then they called Bacon & Van Buskirk.

4. The Solution

  • Bacon & Van Buskirk offered economical productalternatives to reduce the overall cost of the specified fenestration while retaining the look the Architect desired.
  • Bacon & Van Buskirk teamed with the Architect to change the exterior wall details in order to improve the sunshades anchorage, simplify the fenestration and sunshades installation, and reduce shell costs.
  • Bacon & Van Buskirk engineered, furnished, installed and warranted the exterior fenestration systems, the custom sunshade systems, aluminum facia, and aluminum trim.

Notice how the windows in the next photo are completely shaded by the Sunshades at this time of day. 12. 13. In the next three photos, notice the striking corner details and how the aluminum trim is perfectly flat where the Sunshade sections are anchored. 14. 15. 16. 17. The following photo shows an interior office before a SunShade is installed.Notice the amount of direct sunlight streaming into the office area causing increasing heat gain and glare on computer screens, fading of materials, etc. 18. 19.
