Notes: There were a few challenges on this project, one was working on just a large project that had a 30 month schedule, it was great that we all came together as a team and broke the project down into manageable sections.  The other challenge was providing a system that allowed enough daylighting into the building while maintaining the comfort for the patients but also meeting the design performance criteria.
