Education and Research Facilities by Crawford Tracey
Pro-Tech 9SG used at Nova Southeastern University
Located on the coast of South Florida, the Center of Excellence for Coral Reef Ecosystem Science at Nova Southeastern University is the only research facility in the U.S. dedicated to this line of research. This dynamic structure was designed to simulate the movement of the ocean. Crawford-Tracey developed, manufactured, tested and installed a new product specifically for the project to give the research facility the highest level of water resistant and wind-borne debris protection. The product, Pro-Tech 9SG, is a 9-inch four-sided structurally glazed curtain wall system engineered and tested for hurricane conditions.
