Like a bowl of light in the middle of downtown Kansas City, the Sprint Center glows. Appearing opaque by day, and transparent by night, this giant glass structure houses many of Kansas City’s biggest attractions.

 

AWS designed, engineered, manufactured, delivered and installed the custom unitized curtain wall system which consisted of 2,204 units each approximately 5’x 12’-6”. All lites are parallelograms and segmented to create the bowl shape. AWS provided B.I.M. technology through the use of 3-D modeling software and total station surveying for critical building layout.

 

Some of the unique features of this system include unitized, pressure-equalized structurally glazed curtain wall with silicone gaskets between the glass.
