UW Husky Union Building

Novum was contracted to engineer, furnish and install two structurally glazed lobby walls at the north and west atrium with a stunning exterior canopy utilizing point supported glass and architecturally exposed steel. On the inside, timber beams are bracing the entry wall structure back to the main building at each floor slab. The main timber columns and the horizontal V-braces are elliptical shaped in section and form the letter “W” for Washington. Go Huskies!
