We have worked together with HOK architects and John Sisk contractors on this project.

Our works for this mixed use development project involved structural glass facade design for the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital which included 3 glass canopies, cantilevered out by 2m, as well as 41 exterior glass fins with laminated in artwork.

The main entrance canopy consists of 3 No. laminated toughened glass fins cantilevering 1.9 metres from the building 45 Bolsover Street, London- structural glass facadestructure supporting a 3m x 2m laminated toughened glass roof.

The canopy is fixed to the glass fins with countersunk stainless steel bolts and stainless steel angle brackets.

The fins span approximately 7 metres from top to bottom with additional support at mid-height.

The top fixing incorporates a vertical sliding joint detail to ensure and deflections of the main building structure do not load the glass fins.

The design was confirmed by series of impact testing at Wintech lab in Telford.
