Products – Glass Lift Shafts, Architectural Glass
Project Type – Public
Location – London
Main Contractor – Osbourne
This project required the fabrication and installation of glass panels to two lift shafts in the refurbished Hackney Town Hall. Close design co-ordination was needed with the steel work contractor. This enabled pre-fabrication of the laminated panels to align with the steel fabrication. An open dialogue with the main contractor also helped to achieve installation around surrounding finishes. Bespoke glass clamps hold the laminated glass panels in place with a silicon seal applied between panels. As the steel work was pre-fabricated, Harlow Glass had to work to very tight tolerances. The panels also had to integrated with the lift installation at the interface with the lower floor doors. The building was in use through the works duration meaning very high health & safety requirements had to be met.
Since completion the project has gone on to win numerous awards including The RIBA London Regional Award and in the New London Awards Conservation & Retrofit category. The project was also shortlisted and commended in a number of other awards.
