GP’s Patrick Loughran, FAIA, PE, LEED AP, and Richard Barrett, AIA, participated in a panel discussion during the Facades+ Conference Friday, October 8, at the Mid-America Club in Chicago. Loughran and Barrett discussed GP’s newest projects 320 South Canal, also known as BMO Tower, and the Lincoln Park Zoo lion house, officially known as the Pepper Family Wildlife Center. Both projects were highlighted for overcoming significant obstacles to achieve impressive and efficient installations of large-format glazing.
