1 New Street Square curved unit installation

Installation of the unitised curtain walling on 1 New Street Square is well underway and the steel structure is now completed above to allow the removal of the ground floor column below the East nose area. The column in this area has become a hanger and the movements associated with this change have now occurred.

With all that completed the installation of the curved units can commence. Each unit contains 3 curved double glazed units. These are lam/lam glass units and have a high performance solar control coating. Supported from the top and restrained to the unit below in the normal way these units do have to accommodate significant forces associated with such large three dimensional units.
