Overview

The CTBC Bank Headquarters, located in CTBC Financial Park, features a 30-story and 21-story commercial office building, a 10-story hotel and a four-level retail center.

We provided façade engineering services to NBBJ and Fei & Cheng Associates for this complex, which was completed in 2012.

Highlights

  • The façade system consists of extensive unitized curtain walls at the three towers, and multiple glass wall variations at the podium levels.
  • The main tower has a series of vertical atriums carved into it creating “centers” or vertical courtyards composed of multistory, cable-supported glass that extends the entire height of the structure on two faces.
  • The office towers will feature a curtain wall that allows for maximum natural daylight through narrow floor plates, with floor-to-ceiling glass and automatic sensors.
