Stamp of approval for Glassolutions
One of the world’s largest sorting offices has undergone an energy efficient window replacement programme by glass and glazing specialist Glassolutions.
The window replacement programme formed part of the refurbishment of the Royal Mail sorting office and post office at Mount Pleasant in Farringdon, London.
The Advanced Facades team at Saint Gobain group company Glassolutions worked closely with main contractor Mace to provide a fully designed solution that enabled render to be replaced and integrated into a new Technal MX curtain walling system incorporating PLANITHERM ULTRA N low-E glass.
PLANITHERM ULTRA N is a high performance thermally insulating (low-E) glass that offers both low U-values coupled with unrivalled neutrality and is positioned optimally for commercial applications. The PLANITHERM ULTRA N coating is highly durable and easy to process helping to ensure the highest levels of quality.
The existing windows were replaced with the curtain walling system and high performance glass whilst the entire building and operations of the Royal Mail site remained live 24 hours a day.
Glassolutions was appointed to handle the contract by Mace because of its experience in handling large, complex projects, ability to resource this size of project and its financial stability.
