With an exterior façade of concrete, the eyebrows and lintels connected with Schӧck Isokorb® were recommended by the design team. Structural Engineer, Glotman Simpson lead the initiative to incorporate Isokorb® because of the direct contact of the exterior concrete with the interior slabs, in addition to their design goals for interior comfort and energy performance.
