The Glassolutions team completed the complex £1 million interior and exterior glazing project within just 20 weeks, using a range of glazing options within the Schueco window and curtain walling system.
Bespoke engineered glass solutions, including challenging deflection tolerances were required to deliver the glazing specification within the listed building. Externally, the building’s existing smoked glass windows have been replaced with high performance clear glass units featuring a range of glass including Planidur COOL-LITE SKN165, Security HST Toughened Planitherm Ultra N on outer panes of sealed units and Stadip Protect laminated on inner panes. Where fire rated glass was required Glassolutions used a combination of Securit Planitherm Total+ and 25mm Contraflam 60 on inner panes.
Within the atrium, and for the screens and doors at ground floor level, Stadip Silence clear toughened HST acoustic laminate was used to deliver Rw 41dB acoustic performance.
Where the building steps in at level six, a new landscaped roof terrace area overlooking the reinstated glazed light wells has been created featuring glazed balustrading using Glassolutions SGG security glazing with handrail.
