Utilizing Novum's Buttonhead Point Support Glass System, the glass is attached to the support structure with Stainless Steel Cast Spiders. The use of point fixings gave flexibility to handle the complex geometry of the horizontal steel walls. The glass consists of insulated glazing with a low emissivity. Due to high wind loads on the building, a laminated layer of glass is used on both the outer and inner layers of the insulated glass.
