International Conference Centre, Edinburgh
Fire safety assured at Scotland’s landmark conference centre with CONTRAFLAM
A stunning glass atrium in the recently opened £85 million extension to the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) was created using CONTRAFLAM fully insulating clear, fire-resistant safety glass manufactured by Glassolutions.
Installed by façade designer and contractor Charles Henshaw & Sons, the fire rated glass atrium provides protection from the first floor through to the roof level, and helps to create a light and spacious area.
"The EICC was already a landmark Edinburgh building, but the impressive new extension makes it very special and it’s a project we’re proud to have been involved with. CONTRAFLAM has enabled us to meet the brief extremely well thanks to the unique unit construction that utilises toughened glass which assisted in meeting the guarding loads and acoustic reduction value."
