Big Span Structures, a leader in concept-to-completion solutions for signature lightweight tensile membrane structures, recently completed an ETFE skylight installation on the roof of the new PGA Tour headquarters in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. The project consists of a two-layer ETFE application, known as a cushion system, where a pneumatic system maintains air between the layers of film that are attached to aluminum extrusions. The ETFE installation includes five skylights, each consisting of five cushions or 25 cushions total, covering a combined 7,300 square feet. The film features a printed frit pattern to help with solar control and shading into the building space below.
Designed by Foster + Partners Architectural Design and Engineering Firm and working closely with general contractor Clark Construction, Big Span’s unique skylight solutions contribute to the overall aesthetic of the PGA’s new headquarters, as a freshwater lake surrounds its 187,000-square-foot building. Upon its completion at the end of this year, the building will house more than 750 employees that currently occupy 17 buildings scattered throughout the area.
