Float Glass Industries Supplies Glass For A Legal And General Office Refurbishment In Surrey

Financial services company Legal and General’s property in Lotus Park in Staines consists of four two-storey office buildings and provides 79,000 sq ft of prime office accommodation.   The buildings date from the 1980s and were in need of refurbishment.

The scale and prominence of the buildings combined with the exacting nature of the specification meant that only experienced contractors and suppliers would have the necessary credentials to undertake the work.

Specialist glass manufacturer and supplier Float Glass Industries had the track record and credentials to be able to supply and install the glazing elements of the refurbishment and, after a competitive tender process, was awarded the contract.

Steve Ferrie, FGI’s Commercial Sales Director, said, “We have been working with the main building envelope contractor for over five years so could provide ample evidence of our suitability and expertise to meet all the requirements of this complex project.”

The project, worth around £150,000 to Float Glass Industries, took over four months to complete. It required high performance thermal and solar glass, security toughened glass, structured units using Schuco retention pockets and ceramic painted units. FGI manufactured all the products in-house, including painting the ceramic units using its roller painting machine.

Steve Ferrie commented, “We are used to supplying large contracts on time and on budget. But despite our familiarity with such work, we maintain a meticulous attention to detail to ensure we get every element right and meet or exceed every manufacturing standard.”

The finished results have transformed the buildings, giving them a new lease of life and demonstrating yet again that when it comes to high profile complex glazing installations, Float Glass Industries is a name to trust.
