The project required the investigation and upgrade of glazing in two elevations of this large 7 storey office building. Due to the building’s height, access to the works required a specially designed scaffolding fixed through window opes on each floor to a wedged temporary structure inside.
Surrounding stone cladding at each window bay was removed to enable weatherproofing to be checked. New solutions were introduced to prevent water ingress while fire proofing of adjacent steel installations was also undertaken.
A high-pressure water test was carried out on completion to ensure the sealing system was successful.
