Principal Mutual Life
Des Moines, IA
Architect: Helmut Jahn
Midwest’s challenge was to create a spectacular curtainwall design by architect Helmut Jahn with multiple, yet subtle, aesthetic articulations plus demanding performance requirements. Design articulations affected every aspect of this project, from dies to engineering, fabrication to assembly and installation.
Competition was fierce, but Midwest’s creative problem-solving capabilities proved the team could meet every challenge head-on. Four new curtainwall systems for glass, metal panels and limestone were designed, tested and delivered for this stunning corporate headquarters.
