The recent transformation of the Dorrace H. Hamilton Garden Terrace at Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center, which features Saint-Gobain’s SageGlass, recently garnered an Outstanding Achievement Award at the General Building Contractors Association (GBCA) 16th Annual Construction Excellence Awards in the category of Best Industrial/Institutional Project under $10 Million.

According to Saint-Gobain, enclosing the formerly open terrace in glass keeps event noise from disturbing other activities in the center. SageGlass enabled a tint-on-demand ceiling for the new enclosure that preserves views of the city skyline while managing heat and glare issues, ensuring guest comfort.

The new terrace enclosure was designed by BLT Architects and its renovation carried out by Haverstick-Borthwick Company.
