Zurich North American Headquarters
RevealShield SA Self-Adhered
Located on a 40-acre expressway, the North American headquarters for Zurich Insurance Group is designed to reflect the company’s global reach and world-class stature. Architects sought the help of VaproShield to a supply a membrane that would provide the strength and durability required in such a massive phase-construction project. VaproShield supplied 37,000 square feet of RevealShield SA Self-Adhered to be installed behind the open joint cladding. The entire system was secured with thermal spacer clips and a custom aluminum sub-framing system. RevealShield offered an attractive black reveal and exceptional UV stability, both of which were necessary due to open joints between panels.
Certified LEED Platinum, the 783,800-square-foot complex reinforced Zurich’s commitment to environmental stewardship. A timeless and durable material palette married to a bold, clear form created a unique identity for the Zurich headquarters and embodied the core values of the company.
