ECO Cladding is pleased to be part of Capital One's 25-year masterplan development project, providing an engineered floor to floor solution for the Block C phase of construction. Our engineered Alpha E Wall Brackets form the key building block for the exterior fiber concrete (UHPC) rainscreen for the Block C podium and tower of this large-scale development in Fairfax, VA.
The Tower is adjacent to Capital One's current headquarters and consolidates the company's 1,800 district employees and their strategic plan for future growth. The project is LEED Gold Certified. A Fiber Concrete UHPC panel was selected for the this phase's rainscreen facade and ECO Cladding's Alpha E Wall Brackets allowed for floor-to-floor spanning for the subframing system behind the portrait-oriented UHPC panels.
For the Tower portion of the project, the Eci.10 and Eci. 11 subframing systems were utilized to install the fiber concrete (UHPC) panels. In addition, ECO Cladding's traditional Vci.10 subframing was utilized for the building's base podium.
