Dec. 20, 2011 - PRLog -- As reported in the July edition of our newsletter, Custom Components Company was awarded the Lynn University Remembrance Plaza project.  The new structure pictured here will tell the story of four university students and two professors who lost their lives on January 12, 2010 when a 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti.  The memorial was designed by Sousa Architecture of Miramar, FL and Gerrits Construction, Inc. of Boca Raton, FL is the general contractor.

Custom Components Company is supplying the glass and railing requirements for the project, including the structural laminated glass prisms and stainless steel cable railings.  The glass prisms will be made from nearly a quarter of a million dollars of Narima™ dichroic color effect glass from Schott North America, a unique glass that produces dazzling variable color effects.  The glass was sent to TriView Glass Industries, LLC (City of Industry, CA) for lettering, fabrication, laminating and tempering.

Currently TriView is fabricating the 48" x 96" high glass prisms that will consist of two layers of glass sandwiched around the Narima™ inner layer with a matching top.  Each prism contains a printed memorial statement about each of the students and professors.  The six prisms will have accent lights and sit on a concrete base that appears to float in the middle of a reflective pool.  Each glass panel in the prisms is retained by custom stainless steel point mount connectors.  As a contribution to the Remembrance Plaza, Custom Components Company supplied our engineering and design services, through our Engineered Services™ division, at no cost.  Installation will begin in early February 2012.
