Record-Breaking Dynamic Glass Installation Planned for San Jose

A San Jose project is to be fitted with a record-breaking 100,000 sq ft installation of dynamic glass.

The View Dynamic Glass - which transitions through multiple tints in reaction to sunlight - will be installed at USAA Real Estate Company’s America Center II, developed by SteelWave and located in San Jose, California. View claims that the project will mark the largest installation of electrochromic glass in the world.

“The America Center project is designed to be a leading state of the art campus,” said Steve Dunn, senior managing director at SteelWave. “View Dynamic Glass has been key in enabling us to realize that goal by providing a technology that improves occupant comfort, wellness, and productivity. Energy efficiency was also a major driver and View helped us reach ambitious sustainability targets and become pre-certified at the LEED Gold level.”

More than 200 buildings in North America have already have View Dynamic Glass, which is designed for increased comfort and energy efficiency.

Research suggests that views and natural daylight help increase productivity and wellness for building occupants. View said that its system reduces HVAC and lighting energy consumption by as much as 20%, and HVAC peak load by 25%, in a typical commercial installation.
