Goldman Sachs Canopy Engineering

McLaren Engineering Group provided canopy engineering design and detailing services on the sleek, modern looking shade structure attached to the Goldman Sachs Building on West and Vesey Streets in New York, NY. The 350-foot canopy connects two folded planes of glass at the top and bottom, supported by 86 cantilevered tapered, bent structural steel ribs. The facade structure protects pedestrians from sun and inclement weather conditions while providing a unique, stand-out aesthetic to the building.

The McLaren Difference: Applied Ingenuity

McLaren made a difference by engineering a progressive I-shaped profile for the tapered cantilevered canopy member, and created a structural system that permits incremental thermal movement along the length of the canopy. McLaren produced detailed shop drawings for all of the bent plate components, fascia panels and attachments.
