IQHQ, a life sciences real estate development company, has chosen SageGlass, manufacturer of electrochromic glass, to create what the companies say is one of the largest smart glass installations in the world. SageGlass will provide 150,000 square feet of SageGlass Harmony® electrochromic glass, controls, and software for IQHQ’s Research and Development District (RaDD), a 1.7 million square foot life science development on the waterfront in San Diego.
“The team at IQHQ has an incredible vision for RaDD,” said Ryan Park, SageGlass vice president of sales and marketing. “SageGlass is thrilled to take part in this innovative oceanfront development intended to attract the best life sciences talent. With SageGlass Harmony® smart glass, the buildings will be comfortable, energy efficient, and beautiful.”
RaDD was designed by Gensler and is being built by Turner, an international construction services company. SageGlass Harmony was chosen to provide a connection to the outdoors because it maintains a neutral color rendition with its gradient tint.
“RaDD is a transformative project that will advance the future of the life science market in San Diego,” said Marin Gertler, IQHQ vice president of development. “We’ve thoughtfully designed every aspect of RaDD to provide an exceptional experience, and we’re excited to partner with SageGlass to help create spaces where people can do their best work.”
