FAST Thermal Bracket™ Offset Shelf Angle Support
Black and White is a 6-storey mixed-used development with 5 residential levels above a ground floor commercial space

A stunning façade of three alternating bands of white and dark brick, accented by warm wood-framed patios or enclosed balconies. Over height exterior entrances are lined with warm cedar siding, extending into a bright lobby and oversized interior hallways with feature walls.

FERO FAST Thermal Brackets were used at every floor in the building envelope design to ensure continuous insulation and optimized thermal performance. Using FAST Thermal Brackets enabled the design team to:

  1. Incorporate a thermal break instead of a thermal bridge in the smart, energy-efficient shelf angle design;
  2. Meet or exceed energy code requirements;
  3. Achieve energy and cost efficiencies; and
  4. Provide easy installation for the contractors.

Greenpoint Landing is a 22-acre master-planned development site located on the Brooklyn waterfront with a view of the Manhattan skyline, bringing a mix of ten residential towers and low-rise buildings, a new public school, and four acres of parkland. The buildings are located on reclaimed industrial use lands, and the brick veneer utilized in the building design provides continuity with the historical neighborhood.
