July 2016 supplement

Whether it be the construction of new buildings or the refurbishment of old, glazing plays a key role in the design and operation of these structures. Windows, doors, balustrades and curtain walling all demand exceptional levels of performance therefore require careful thought and planning at the specification stage.

In this dedicated focus on Glass & Glazing, we unveil the new launches and inspiring projects from renowned specialists in the industry. In the new build realm, on page 15, Q-railing showcases how its balustrade solutions have proved integral to the feeling of openness at Blackburn Wing – an aerofoil-shaped ‘treehouse’. Meanwhile in the refurb sector, Crittall Windows demonstrates its ability to retain a building’s industrial heritage using large form Berkeley windows. Turn to page 18 to find out more.

Elsewhere, Essex Safety Glass explains the capabilities of its ESG Switchable LCD panels combined with its range of patented controllers and wiring accessories. Providing optimum privacy, the fully automated systems are ideal for fast and effective partitioning.

We hope you enjoy this special focus. For further information about any of our contributors or if you wish to comment on a particular project featured within this supplement, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
