Because of the scale of this project, a large variety of panel sizes and configurations were necessary.  The quality control aspect of this project can be judged a tremendous success as continuity of coloration and texture from building to building is impressive.  This same statement holds true for the success in matching the existing panel coloration and textures.  While the size of this project is impressive, the lower two floors of the entire complex are differentiated to make them more human in scale.  Darker polished granite with overhangs and glass entrances accentuate this area where the quality of the panel system is readily apparent.
