Grand entrance for Mace Group

Glass and glazing specialist GLASSOLUTIONS has installed a new glazed entrance as part of Mace Group’s sustainable refurbishment of its new global headquarters at 155 Moorgate in London.

The project involved the replacement of the existing 11 metre wide x 7.5 metre high entrance area with a new glazed lobby with white spandrel panels and two pairs of sliding automatic doors to comply with Part M and K of the Building Regulations.  The two existing columns either side of the entrance door have also been re-clad in bead blasted stainless steel cladding panels.The surrounding stainless steel cladding is a bespoke design developed by the GLASSOLUTIONS and Mace design team; the cladding provides a stylish and distinctive appearance bringing the facade to life.

SGG COOL-LITE solar controlled glazing panels have been used to provide an attractive feature whilst also contributing to the comfort of a building's occupants. Solar control glass can be an attractive feature of a building whilst at the same time minimising, or even eliminating, the need for an air conditioning system, reducing running costs of the building and saving energy.    

Mace architect Lisa Torje said: “We are relocating employees from five London offices into one building for the first time since 2006. This is an exciting and significant opportunity for us to redevelop an existing building and we are on target to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating.

“We were impressed by the knowledge and expertise of the GLASSOLUTIONS’ team which enabled us to respect the original architecture and design of the building whilst also delivering the required thermal insulation improvements.  And that’s exactly what we needed at 155 Moorgate.”
