Florida National University – Miami
On Thursday, June 7th, 2018, Florida National University (FNU) hosted the Grand Opening of the brand-new Dr. Jose Regueiro Building, Hialeah, Miami Florida.
The state-of-the-art facility marks a new era in FNU’s history as the first major expansion of the Hialeah Campus. The addition of the building will help the university continue its mission of providing the highest quality of education and service to the community. The Dr. Jose Regueiro Building stands at 6 stories tall and over 12,000m2 (125,000ft2) square feet. The central entranceway is graced with a striking spiralling staircase, winding up openly from the ground floor to the 6th.
P&P Artec, an Illinois based custom railing fabricator, partnered with Glasshape® to provide strong and safe 12mm (1/2″) Tempered Railing Glass system. Each glass piece was a custom size and shape, providing a perfect match to the precast concrete structure forming the stairway. A truly fantastic stainless steel and glass finish, allowing all levels to be bathed in daylight and giving a sense of space and openness.
Glasshape® would like to congratulate P&P Artec on the successful completion of this project and would like to thank them for allowing us to participate in building this iconic structure.
