Elevate Your Campus Aesthetics: Solarban® 70 Glass Adorns UTSA’s High-Tech Cyber Security Center
San Antonio, Texas – The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) National Security Collaboration Center has embraced cutting-edge innovation with its new state-of-the-art Cyber Security Center. To create a modern and visually stunning façade, a harmonious blend of red brick, limestone masonry, metal, and high-performance glass was meticulously selected.
A Trusted Solution for Excellence
Overland Partners, the esteemed architectural firm behind the project, confidently chose Solarban® 70 Glass from Vitro Architectural Glass, the industry’s most commonly specified triple-silver-coated low-e glass. Proven on numerous projects, Solarban® 70 Glass was deemed a high-value option for its exceptional building performance, captivating aesthetics, and overall cost-effectiveness.
The Perfect Harmony of Form and Function
Solarban® 70 Glass offers a transparent, color-neutral aesthetic, coupled with unprecedented solar control and visible light transmittance (VLT). When integrated into a one-inch insulating glass unit (IGU) with conventional clear glass, Solarban® 70 Glass achieves a solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.27 and an impressive VLT of 64%. This perfect balance of form and function ensures optimal energy efficiency and interior comfort.
A Beacon of Learning: Designing with Purpose
The Cyber Security Center, also housing the esteemed School of Data Science and the National Security Collaboration Center (NSCC), required a thoughtfully designed façade to accommodate various programmatic needs and sun orientation. Overland Partners’ brilliant design incorporated curtain walls and strategically placed window openings, taking advantage of daylight while minimizing heat gain and glare.
