Falcon provided special inspections and construction materials testing on every element of this project including steel, concrete, select M.E.P. systems, life safety, roof and façade. In addition to the overall detailed building inspections, Falcon also provided building envelope consultation specifically for the Daily Planet, a 75-foot diameter globe. Falcon led the design development that met the challenges of the Daily Planet’s sphere shape as well as the rigidity of the façade with sound waterproofing systems.
